SHINNSTON -

The Harrison County Street Crimes and Drug unit (SCAD) and members of the Harrison County Sheriff's Department's Investigations Division in cooperation with the Shinnston Police Department, obtained and executed a search warrant Friday, on an apartment inside the city limits of Shinnston. 

Approximately $750 worth of heroin was seized and three people were arrested on felony drug charges, officials said.

The investigation began when members of the Shinnston Police Department received complaints from citizens in reference to drug deals that they had observed at or/near the apartment.

Those arrested include Devon Dejesus Rodriguez, 19, Tia Etana Stout, 24, and Ryan 'Vino' Andrew Viglianco, 24. All three are from Shinnston, and all were charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute and conspiracy to deliver heroin. 

Additional arrests are expected in this case.
