Aug. 22, 2013 @ 08:40 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Three men were arrested on drug charges Wednesday when Huntington Police executed a search warrant at a home near a local public school complex.

Officers entered the home located at 208 8th Avenue as part of an investigation into a large-scale heroin trafficking operation between Detroit and Huntington, Chief Skip Holbrook said in a press release.

The home is located approximately one block away from the Southside Elementary and Huntington Middle School complex. Holbrook said officers were placed near the complex as a precaution, but he said there were no "unusual occurrences" during the execution of the warrant.

Domenico Chianesi, 33, of Huntington, was arrested with Darius Jerome Perry, 30, and Bryant Donovan Taylor, 34, both of whom are from Detroit.

Each man was charged with one felony count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and one count of misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance.

Holbrook said the investigation into the trafficking operation is ongoing, and he expects more arrests in connection with the case.

Members of the FBI Huntington Violent Crime/Drug Task Force, Huntington Police Department S.W.A.T., Special Emphasis Unit, and Huntington Police Department K-9 Unit were involved in the execution of the warrant.
