Wed. 10:16 a.m.: DEA raids house on Youngstown North Side

Report: Home is where local football standout Lynn Bowden grew up

YOUNGSTOWN — Youngstown police and agents with the US drug enforcement administration, U.S. marshals service and homeland security carried out a drug search at a house in the 200 block of superior Street this morning.

According to a reporter for online sports publication The Athletic, the home is owned by local football standout Lynn Bowden’s grandmother and is the home where Bowden grew up. Bowden, who played football at Warren G. Harding and Liberty high schools and the University of Kentucky, was picked this spring in the NFL draft to play professional football for the Raiders.

At about 9:30 a.m. today, agents carried a box marked DEA evidence and several long rifles out of the house.

No one apparently was arrested. Two or three males appeared to be in handcuffs on the front porch as several agents stood watch nearby. The identities of the men were not immediately released.

Altogether, they were more than a dozen law enforcement officers inside the house and around the house.

Superior Street is in the Brier Hill area on the North Side of Youngstown.
