HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- One man was arrested, and guns, drugs and cash seized during a raid on a house in west Huntington Tuesday night.

Members of the Huntington Special Emphasis Unit raided the house in the 1800 block of Jefferson Avenue and arrested the occupant 51-year-old Tony Eldon Lee, Sr.

Lee was charged with one count of delivery of a controlled substance and one count of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. His bond was set at $100,000 cash only.

Huntington Police say they got the search warrant after residents reported nonstop foot traffic coming in and out of the house. Officers then made an undercover drug buy.

Police say a SWAT team was used to gain entry to the house. They tried to get in through the back door, but it was reinforced with steel bars. Officers had to break the door into pieces to get inside.

Officers recovered two shotguns, five handguns, numerous prescription pills, approximately 12 grams of marijuana and about $1,000 dollars cash.

Several other people were taken into custody at the scene.
