The FBI was helping local law enforcement with a search

SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – The FBI was helping local law enforcement with a raid in Salem Tuesday morning.

It happened just after 8 a.m. in the 500 block of E. 3rd Street, just off of Lincoln Avenue and State Street. The road was blocked off in the area.

According to the Columbiana County Drug Task force, the raid was the result of a month-long investigation.

The Columbiana County sheriff said they were serving a drug-related warrant and suspected methamphetamine was inside the house, which led to them calling Youngstown Police’s bomb squad.

Officials say this isn’t the fist time the task force has stopped by Third Street.

“Salem has had a large uptick in methamphetamines as our whole county has. It’s not just Salem. But East Third Street, probably about the last few years, we’ve had a little bit more busts on this particular street than there have been on others,” said Detective Sgt. Brett Grabman.

Right now, no one has been arrested.
