Upon entering the property, police took into custody the 60-year-old female property owner and two other individuals who were residing on the property, a 32-year-old female and 28-year-old male.

The search located a loaded handgun, a loaded shotgun, and a conducted energy weapon.

Police also located a quantity of fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, currency and other items consistent with the drug trafficking.
