Authorities arrested a Shenandoah County man after a search of a Strasburg home Thursday.

The Northwest Virginia Regional Drug and Gang Task Force acted on a search warrant on a Marshall Street residence as part of an ongoing investigation, according to information released Friday by Joshua Price, a supervisory special agent with the state police.

Agents seized a suspected controlled substance and two firearms during the search, Price said. Agents arrested Allen and charged him with possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm while in the possession of a schedule I or II controlled substance. The substances were not identified in the information Price provided.

Officers with the Strasburg Police Department assisted the task force during the search, Price said.

The Northwest Virginia Regional Drug and Gang Task Force consists of agents assigned from sheriff’s offices in Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah and Warren counties, police departments in Front Royal, Strasburg and Winchester and from the Virginia State Police.
