YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two men were arrested during a drug raid in Youngstown.

According to a police report, officers were serving a search warrant Tuesday at a house in the 600 block of Ferndale Avenue when they uncovered several drugs, guns and cash inside the house.

Officers seized heroin, marijuana, crack, a bottle of Promethazine, three digital scales, a security system, two guns and $1,350 in cash.

Austin Mendenhall, 32, was arrested and charged with three counts of drug possession and having weapons under disability. Donte Maudlin, 35,  was also arrested at the house on an outstanding warrant for driving under suspension.

Also on Tuesday, police raided a house on Overland Avenue. Donald Young, 19, was charged with drug possession.

According to a police report, officers found a large bag of crack cocaine on the backseat of the police cruiser where Young had been sitting when he was being taken to the Mahoning County Jail. James Maxwell, 56, and Candice Jackson, 26, were issued citations for drug possession because the crack pipes were found in the house near them, according to the report.

Investigators say they had been watching the two houses for weeks and conducted undercover drug buys.
