Authorities said the search warrant was the result of an investigation, drug purchases from the home and neighbor complaints.

Agents said they recovered 308 grams of heroin, 78 grams of an unidentified powder substance, an AK-47 assault rifle and two loaded pistols.

Tityonina Scott was arrested in the case and charged with trafficking heroin and possession of a firearm during a violent felony.

Authorities believe the seizure prevented over 3,000 dosage units from being sold on city and county streets.

The investigation is ongoing.
