TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

A host of Toledo officials assisted in taking drugs and firearms off the streets.

The Toledo Police Drug Task Force, Lucas County Sheriff's Office, FBI and ATF all had a hand in seizing multiple kilos of heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine.

Officials also seized six firearms, two of which were stolen.

Several undercover TPD officers part of the Metro Drug task force were part of this investigation and seizure. But now the case is in the hands of the feds who will determine what federal charges these people will face.

And big breaks like this for cops don't come easy. Long grueling investigations involving members of several law enforcement agencies working together is what cracks these cases and keeps you and you family a little safer.

"In any community, when you have a drug trade, you have the possibility of violence. So when you can take people of the streets that are involved in long term drug involvement that leads to crime and they carry gun,  that ultimately leads to a safer community," explained Sergeant Kevan Toney. 

Police say multiple arrests have been made as a result of the seizure.
