At least eight people have been detained for questioning after police searched a Columbus home Thursday afternoon.

About a dozen Columbus Police Department officers were spotted searching a home in the 2600 block of Second Avenue around 2:30p.

Police are believed to have been looking for drugs.

At this time, News 3 is blurring the faces of those detained because they have not been charged.
