ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A month-long investigation into illegal drug trafficking in northeast Nevada has netted a quarter-pound (110 grams) of heroin and at least four arrests in Elko.

Police told the Elko Daily Free Press that sheriff's deputies and detectives from the regional combined narcotics unit executed a search warrant Thursday at a residence near the Lamoille Highway east of downtown.

They confiscated nearly 120 grams of heroin and 21 grams of methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia and a stolen firearm.
