Authorities seized suspected heroin, other drugs and multiple weapons, including crossbows, during a drug raid Friday.
The Norwalk Police Department combined efforts with the Willard Police Department and Huron County Sheriff’s Office to use the search warrant at an undisclosed Norwalk residence.
“The search warrant was the result of a seven-month investigation involving trafficking in heroin and other drugs,” Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Seth Fry said.
During the search warrant, detectives said they located suspected heroin, methamphetamine, LSD, psilocybin and various prescription drugs. Authorities also seized three handguns, two shotguns, a rifle, a crossbow, five compound crossbows and more than $26,000 in U.S. currency.
The suspect will be charged once laboratory results are available. The investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are expected,” Fry said.
The Norwalk and Willard police departments and sheriff’s office all are members of METRICH, a 10-county decentralized task force focused on reducing the availability of illegal drugs and weapons.
Anyone with information concerning the suspected sale and/or use of illegal drugs is encouraged to call the Norwalk Police Department at 419-663-6780. Information can be left anonymously.
