Twelve people are now under arrest, following a series of early morning raids in Buffalo.

Investigators say seven search warrants were executed throughout the city, but were mostly focused on Buffalo's west side. These locations included addresses on Fargo Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue, Kermit Avenue, Tonawanda Street, Perkins Place and Rhode Island.

According to police, half of the suspects arrested Monday have previous felony convictions. Monday's charges are related to illegal narcotics and/or weapons charges.

Investigators say they seized more than $10,000 in cash, along with two loaded handguns and a variety of drugs.
