Police raid Warren home for second time in 15 months

Warren police raided a house on Porter Street in Warren, Ohio

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Markeisha Dunkerton and Edwin Salguero both entered not guilty pleas on charges of drug possession and child endangerment at their arraignments on Tuesday.

The two were arrested Monday after Warren’s Street Crimes Unit and Tactical Entry team served a search warrant at the Porter Street N.E. home. Investigators said they found cocaine, ammunition, cash and four surveillance cameras.

Three young children were also there at the time of the search.

The Warren City Health Department has condemned the home for what they are calling unsafe and unsanitary conditions.

“It was not a place for animals, let alone children,” Warren City Law Director Greg Hicks said. “Just unsightly, just deplorable, unclean, unkempt. I mean, it was not just messy, it was simply unhealthy,” Hicks said.

Hicks said they are exploring the city’s nuisance abatement statutes since it is not the first time police have been to the home.

“March of 2014 we were conducting an investigation of illegal narcotic sales and we executed a search warrant at that home with the same people, so it seems to be an ongoing enterprise,” Hicks said.

Both Dunkerton and Salguero are at the Trumbull County Jail on $7,500 bond.
