Task force members served warrants in multiple locations at 4 p.m. Feb. 9, according to the sheriff's department.

During the searches, investigators seized three rifles, 10 handguns, a large amount of ammunition, two pounds of heroin, one ounce of cocaine, digital scales, packaging for illegal narcotics, methamphetamine and about $9,000 in U.S. currency, officials said.
