HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Police say they arrested eight people and found drugs and a stolen car during a raid of a house in West Virginia.

The Huntington Police Department says a SWAT team and members of a drug task force searched the home Thursday.

Authorities found fentanyl, heroin, cash, a gun as well as scales and other items commonly used to package and sell drugs.

Multiple people were charged with drug-related crimes and others were arrested for having active warrants.

Police also found a stolen vehicle behind the house that was involved in a hit-and-run crash in the area early Thursday. It was towed for further investigation.
