Huntington drug bust: three arrested, neighbors not surprised

Posted: Updated:

Three men are arrested for suspected drug dealing in Huntington.

Police made the arrests after searching a home on the 300 block of 6th Avenue.

One of the men is going to be extradited to Detroit to face charges there.

Police seized some marijuana and heroin at the scene, and believe one or all of the men may have swallowed or flushed drugs, when police showed up.

Neighbors are not surprised to see several police cruisers and K-9 unit on their street for a drug-related call.

"Right down the street, there's a house with a bunch of steps, and there's always women of ill repute, and there's a bunch of drug dealers all over this neighborhood," says neighbor, Paul Merritt. "So it's not surprising, but some of the people around here are pretty good."

The men were taken to Magistrate Court to be arraigned.
