The Erie County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit made a six-figure dent in the war on drugs Wednesday.

Deputies seized more than two pounds of heroin during a raid of a home on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo. The heroin was cut and had a street value of approximately $200,000.

Investigators also seized a hydraulic press, scales and three guns. One of the guns was stolen from a person in Schuyler County, near Watkins Glen.

The Sheriff's office has charged Shawn Woods, 25, with criminal possession of a controlled substance, intent to sell, criminal  possession of a firearm, criminal possession of a stolen firearm, three misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of drug paraphernalia, and unlawful possession of marijuana. 

Woods is locked up at the Erie County Holding Center.
