During the execution of the search warrant, law enforcement officers seized televisions, shotguns, handguns, rifles, ammunition, safe, machetes, computers, approximately 30 bindles of heroin, crack cocaine, controlled scheduled narcotics (pills), marijuana, needles and approximately $1000 of U.S. currency.
