Three people are taken into custody after a drug bust in Perry County.

Sgt. Kevin Starrett says on Thursday deputies along with members of the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team executed search warrants at 7650 Number 8 Hollow Road in New Lexington.

Starrett says deputies recovered a large quantity of marijuana, an undisclosed amount of currency and firearms from the property.

He says the names of the people arrested aren’t being released at this time.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation’s aviation unit also assisted at the scene.
