Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says a drug bust at 1620 Wheeling avenue Thursday morning was the culmination of an ongoing drug investigation.

A search warrant was served by the Sheriff’s Office  Special Response Team around 10:30 a.m. . Six of the seven people in the home at the time of the raid were taken into custody for questioning, three males and three females.

According to Sheriff Lutz, "We’ll have to go interview anybody that was here. Get a statement from everybody and then the case will be presented to Mr. Haddox our prosecutor for charges."

It is expected that charges will be filed early Friday morning. Sheriff Lutz also detailed what was found inside the home during the beginning stages of the search process.

"Right now we’ve recovered a firearm, a pistol, from the house. Also recovered some methamphetamine, heroin and a large sum of U.S. currency."
