Taylor County (WQOW) - Four people are arrested in a drug bust in Taylor County.

The Taylor County Sheriff says four men were arrested Thursday night after executing a search warrant. The sheriff says the warrants were the result of a lengthy narcotics investigation between the DOJ and the sheriff's department.

Authorities say a significant amount of black tar heroin, cocaine and other drug trafficking items and cash were seized. The four men will be facing multiple felony charges. At least three of the four are not U.S. citizens. The federal immigration enforcement officials are reviewing the fourth man's citizenship status.

Four children were also taken into temporary protective custody. The sheriff's department is still investigating.
