GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -

Six people were arrested after a series of drug raids at four homes in Guthrie last week. Even worse, nine children were also discovered living in the homes.

Last Thursday, Guthrie Police, along with the Logan County Sheriff's office, served four search warrants simultaneously to four homes located within two blocks of each other on the west side of Guthrie.

An undisclosed amount of drugs and paraphernalia were seized from the homes where it was soon learned that children also resided. The Department of Human Services (DHS) was called in to assist and they took three of the children into protective custody. The six other children were released to family members.
