ACCOVILLE - A search warrant executed at a residence in Accoville on Sept. 10 led to the discovery of weapons, marijuana, money and suspected heroin.

According to four separate criminal complaints, along with a release from the Logan County Sheriff's Office, Lt. B.E. Ferrell and F.M. Ferrell II, as well as members assigned to the U.S. 119 Task Force, carried out the warrant at the residence of Marquita Samika Brooks, 35, at 124 Litz Hill in Accoville.
