LISBON - Sheriff Ray Stone confirmed Thursday several vehicles in the area of Yellow Creek Church in the afternoon were preparing for a raid of a home.
Members of the Columbiana County Drug Task Force, the SRT team and sheriff's deputies entered a home to execute a search warrant issued earlier Thursday. The address of the home is not being released. Stone said although authorities surrounded the home to make sure no one could run away, they soon learned the home's residents were not home at the time of the raid.
Authorities reportedly seized cash, drugs and were in the process of confirming some of the items in the home had been reported stolen. The spokesman for the Columbiana County Drug Task Force declined to provide any further information.
