Three Lewis County people are facing felony drug charges after they were allegedly found to be making meth in a months-long investigation, according to New York State Police.

On Thursday, April 26, members of several state police units, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Army National Guard Counter Drug Task Force, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office and the Village of Lowville Police Department executed a search warrant at 4267 Cherry Street in Lyons Falls, Lewis County.

Police say the following items were found during the search:

- Numerous high capacity ammunition magazines that were loaded with live ammunition.

Police say all of the weapons were illegally possessed.

Ehlers is being held in the Madison County Jail without bail.
