(KAIR)--Arrests are made following the execution of a search warrant at an Atchison residence Thursday morning.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson told MSC News the Special Response Team, as part of an ongoing investigation involving state and federal authorities, executed the search warrant around 6:15 at 1124 Riley Street. “Been working over recent days preparing,” Wilson said. “Officers, detectives, agents, our Special Response Team, all gathered in the early morning hours [of March 7] and this raid was executed with no one injured.”

Drugs were allegedly found in the home, and Wilson said two were taken into custody. “Heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a handgun were seized from the residence. We do have two people in custody. They include Ray Atlakson, 31, and Jessica Mottin, 30, both who live at 1124 Riley. They are now both charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of heroin, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia. Atlakson is also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by an unlawful user of a controlled substance. Mottin is charged with criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.”

Following their arrests, Atlakson and Mottin were both booked into the Atchison County Jail.
