Posted: Updated:

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio – Members of the Columbiana County Drug Task Force conducted two raids on Friday.

Police and task force agents searched the 923 Vine Street home of 35-year-old Amanda Bragg and 23-year-old Anthony Williams following a four month long investigation.

The raid turned up drug paraphernalia, digital scales and $1,000 cash.

Williams was arrested on an outstanding warrant for obstructing justice.

Bragg was arrested on outstanding warrants for drug possession and permitting drug abuse.

The drug task force was joined by U.S. Marshals and sheriff's deputies during a search of a unit of the Emerald Inn in Wellsville.

Agents say the six month long investigation turned up more than $300 in currency and drug paraphernalia.

The unit was occupied by Gerald Bryant and Maria Beaver.

More charges are pending in each case.
