Federal search warrants were served Monday at three Lebanon addresses, part of a larger investigation into a suspected narcotics trafficking operation based here.

Not much is known concerning the case; however, Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said the investigation is continuing.

What is known is that Lebanon Police Department, its SWAT team and agents with the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency, or DEA, executed three search warrants at 407 Pennsylvania Ave., at 227 Trousdale Ferry Pike and at 840 Carthage Hwy., Apartment 10, all in Lebanon, on Monday, May 7. Four additional search warrants were executed in Nashville.

The search warrants were related to an ongoing Federal drug trafficking investigation that is based out of Lebanon, Bowen said.

He told The Wilson Post Tuesday afternoon that no arrests have been made, but authorities did seize some drugs, money and weapons from the Lebanon locations.
