    The FBI searched a home on Maple Hill Avenue in Newington for several hours Thursday and Hartford Police said it was for an investigation into the alleged sale or manufacturing of illegal narcotics. (Published Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017)

    There was a federal drug raid at a home on Maple Hill Avenue in Newington Thursday morning and FBI agents who searched the house brought out boxes and other items.

    Hartford Police said this was one of several drug investigations across the region, all of which were under control, and posed no threat to the public.

    The man who owns the home the FBI raided said he's rented it out to tenants for five years and said the residents are a nice couple with small children. He called them good tenants who pay their rent on time.  

    State Police said a couple of search warrants were executed and some arrests were made today during these raids. It's not clear if there were any arrests in the Newington case.

    The FBI has not commented on the searches.
