Chillicothe Police officers and detectives and Livingston County Sheriff’s Office deputies, including K-9 Zaki, served a search warrant in the 100 block of Mitchell Road Tuesday. Maples reports officers located several items during the search, including area residents’ checks, professional forging equipment, a large amount of narcotics, firearms, and false identifications.
