    WILKES-BARRE — Police have released more details, including the names of suspects, after federal agents executed an “enforcement action” on a residence on Charles Street last week.

    Police said Truman Jones, 40, Kimberly Ramsey, 25, and Victoria Kraynak, 44, were all arrested and charged with felony-related drug crimes as a result of the raid.

    On Feb. 9, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), along with city police and Pennsylvania State Police Troop P Vice Unit, executed a search warrant at 163 Charles Street.

    Investigators said that distribution quantities of heroin, illegal firearms, drug paraphernalia and cash was seized during the search.

    Police said the warrant was the result of a cooperative effort between local, state and federal agencies. The case was started several months ago by the Wilkes-Barre Anti Crime Unit and the P Vice Unit.

    Police said the ATF was involved in the investigation due to the alleged reports of illegal firearms involved.

    Court documents indicate that Ramsey and Kraynak each face drug possession and manufacture, deliver or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver charges. A court docket for Jones is not yet available.

    Ramsey remains jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail, while Kraynak is free on $50,000 bail.

    Both are scheduled for preliminary hearings before Magisterial District Judge Rick Cronauer at 10 a.m. on Feb. 23.
