The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, along with the Portage County Sheriff’s Office and its Drug and Violent Crime Unit seized 20 firearms and approximately 5,000 rounds of ammunition while executing a federal search warrant at a Ravenna Township residence on Friday, according to a sheriff’s office press release.
Numerous high capacity magazines were also recovered.
An individual in the residence is prohibited from possessing firearms due to previous felony drug trafficking and drug possession convictions in the Portage County Court of Common Pleas. That person’s identification and the location of the home within the township were not immediately available.
Investigators will present evidence to the United States Attorneys Office for future criminal charges, the release says.
