Detectives looked at surveillance and were applied and granted search warrants for two apartments on the 200 block of East Main Street. A Ghost Gun, a firearm loaded with 21 rounds of ammunition, two additional high-capacity magazines, 56 rounds of ammunition, 310 bags of heroin, and 3.5 grams of cocaine were seized.
