HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Police say five tractor-trailers at a Huntington scrap metal hauler have been impounded as part of an investigation.

Interim Police Chief Jim Johnson says the trucks were taken from Cisco Trucking on Monday night because the firm failed to pay its business license.

He says the trucks were seized as part of a joint operation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Media outlets report the trucks were taken to Huntington’s impound lot.

No charges have been filed.

A woman who answered the phone at the business Tuesday said no one was available for comment.

A DEA spokeswoman in Washington, D.C., said she couldn’t immediately provide more information on the agency’s involvement.
