ELYRIA — At least one person was arrested in a series of raids by law enforcement Wednesday morning.

The Elyria Police Department’s Narcotics Unit, in conjunction with the Special Response Team, executed three separate search warrants related to a drug investigation, police Capt. Chris Costantino said.

The search warrants were conducted at two homes on Jefferson Street and one home on Wolf Court.

Costantino said an arrest was made and evidence was confiscated during the raids. Several guns were confiscated from one of the Jefferson Street homes.

Costantino couldn’t comment on whether the raids or evidence found are related to the investigation into the recent rash of drug overdoses.

“It’s still an ongoing investigation and we’re still putting everything together,” Costantino said.
