YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A large amount of drugs and half a dozen guns were seized in a pair of raids at suspected drug houses, according to Youngstown Police.

Monday morning, members of the Youngstown Police Department’s Vice Squad showed WKBN some of the items that they said were seized from the homes on Saint Louis and East Philadelphia Avenues last Thursday night. They said the home on East Philadelphia had also been the scene of a homicide back in late August.

“At that house, we recovered four weapons and approximately two ounces of heroin, and we were able to make arrests on that. The guns did go out for analysis,” said Youngstown Police Lt. Gerry Slattery.

Police said close to $6,000 worth of heroin and cocaine were confiscated in the two raids, and a half dozen people were arrested.

Police charged Roy Coney, Shaina Bell, Elijah Hatten, and Lamar Coleman with possession of drugs and drug instruments in connection with the E. Philadelphia Ave. house and charged Mustafa Musleh and Robert Clark with the same for what they reported finding at the St. Louis Ave. house.
