LIMA — Four Lima men were taken into custody Monday after members of the West Central Ohio Crime Task Force and the FBI’s North West Ohio Safe Streets Task Force served four narcotics-related search warrants in the 500 block of Orena Avenue in Lima.

A fifth search warrant was served in the 4700 block of Allentown Road in Allen County.

The joint effort was part of a long-term and ongoing investigation into fentanyl trafficking in the Lima community, according to a press release issued by the Allen County Sheriff’s Office.

During the search, more than one kilogram of suspected fentanyl was seized, along with around $45,000 in U.S. currency, five handguns, one illegal unregistered automatic machine gun and various drug paraphernalia and electronics. Four vehicles were also taken into evidence in the raid.

Arrested were Mychal Liles, 43; Lashane Liles, 48; Demontay Liles, 24; and Marcus Brown, 34, all of Lima. They are being held in the Allen County jail on charges of possession of fentanyl in an amount greater than 100 grams, felonies of the first degree.

Assisting in serving the warrants were the Allen County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, Auglaize County SWAT team, FBI Cleveland Division SWAT team, Grand Lake Task Force, Lima Police Department, Allen County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
