DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Seven people are facing charges after a months-long investigation into narcotics sales that led to a raid in Dunkirk.

With the combined efforts of Dunkirk police, the Chautauqua County Regional Drug Task Force and the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force, the search took place at a house on Deer Street this past Friday. There, Dunkirk police say cocaine, crack cocaine, fentanyl and a quantity of cash were found.
