SALEM, Ohio -

An eight month investigation in Columbiana County has resulted in three arrests, as well as the recovery of stolen property, drugs and cash.

The County Drug Task force says that a search warrant was executed at the John Taylor residence at 597 Walnut Street in Salem on Friday evening.

Investigators say they found crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia, digital scales, stolen property and $1,400 in currency.

Authorities arrested Bradley DeAtley at the home, who was wanted in Mahoning County for a probation violation.

Also on Friday, the task force searched a residence at 162 West Pershing in Salem, where they found stolen property and $1,600 cash. Investigators say the recovered property had been stolen from Club Fuel at 188 railroad Street.

Club Fuel was one of two Salem businesses broken into early Thursday. Salem police issued surveillance photos from one of the break-ins hoping the public could help them locate a suspect.

According to a statement from the Task Force, the warrants were obtained through a joint effort with the Salem Police.

Task Force officers also say that due to the activity around 597 Walnut Street, authorities stopped a vehicle containing Marvin Harsch, who was wanted on a secret indictment charging him with drug offenses. Investigators also arrested Melanie Sobek on an outstanding warrant for child support.
