A third East End Drug Task Force raid Friday netted two arrests on felony drug sales and possession charges in Northampton, according to a Southampton Town police report.

The search warrant was executed at a property on Pine Court at 6:20 a.m., only a few minutes after authorities searched two other properties in Riverhead on Doctors Path and Union Avenue and arrested six people.

The three search warrants came two day after another property in Riverhead was also searched by members of several police agencies working with the task force.Authorities have not yet said whether the four all raids were related, though a police report out of Southampton Town states the Northampton arrests came as the result of a “long term investigation.”

Southampton Town police declined to provide further details about the investigations, referring all questions to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.
