A police search of a Buffalo home resulted in 12 people being arrested for illegal guns and drugs. The drug and weapons bust was the result of a joint investigation by the New York State Police and Buffalo Police Department. The focus was to stop the flow of illegal weapons and drugs in Buffalo's Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood. The 'dirty' dozen were arraigned on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, before Buffalo City Court Judge Andrew C. LoTempio.
