US Marshals, DEA searching Lynn Bowden’s childhood home in Youngstown (UPDATED)

According to WKBN, U.S. Marshals and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) are currently searching Lynn Bowden’s childhood home in Youngstown, Ohio.

Details are sparse at this point, but Bowden was seen standing on the porch in handcuffs with the other people who were in the house. In the video from WKBN, you can see him sitting on the porch as well:

No one has been arrested at this time and investigators are not revealing what they are looking for.

UPDATE (10:16 AM): WKBN says officials seized “a number of loaded assault rifles and handguns” and sources say “agents and police have also made drug buys at the home but not from Bowden.”

UPDATE (11:00 AM): According to Kyle Tucker, the house belongs to Bowden’s grandmother and he is not one of the 12+ official residents.

UPDATE (11:15 AM): Bowden’s mother Melissa Phillips has confirmed that the house is Bowden’s grandmother’s and that he was not arrested.

    Not a good look, for sure.

    One look at the condition of the house kind of tells you what kind of situation he grew up with.

      RealCatsFan…if the “condition” of that house stands out to you as being in bad shape, you must be the walking talking definition of white privilege. I wish I had a house like that growing up.

      N-UR-i, you can take his white privilege and stick it where the sun don’t shine. He literally made an observation you race obsessed whack job.

      My apologies if my comment offended you. It is common knowledge that Lynn grew up in tough circumstances, and yes, the fact that the house appears to be missing gutters, porch column leaning, etc., looks like the folks living there don’t have the means to keep up the maintenance on it. Don’t know how that reflects on whether or not I come from a background of “white privilege”. I am white, so I guess by your definition that makes me privileged. Whatever – I’m grateful for what I have, and I go out of my way to help folks who are less fortunate, so hopefully that makes you feel better. Sorry to hear of the tough situation you had growing up – hope things are better now. Good day!

    Obviously it’s drug related, but that doesn’t mean it has anything to do with Lynn.

      Perception is reality to most. Unfair as it may be, that is the way the public operates. You have to be careful where you go.

    Thank god we have these LEO’s to keep us safe. Drug dealers are predators who help ruin lives, throw the book at everyone who thought it was cool to be hanging out there.

      I’d wanna know what kind of drugs before I condemned anyone, since marijuana is a plant that grows out of the ground naturally, and is legal in several states.

      Deadly Nightshade grows naturally too. I don’t recommend smoking it.

      Tvor03 there are many plants that are deadly and many that arent. Your logic is dumb. We eat many different types of mushroom but there is some that can kill you.

    Woah you mean the guy who sucker punched someone before a game might not be such a good guy? Who would’ve thought.

      It’s not a sucker punch when you walk up to a man and look him straight in the eye and smack the crappieola out of him.

      It’s a sucker punch when both people are just talkin/arguing and one person decides to quickly punch a dude when the other isn’t ready

      It’s not a sucker punch when one side is in a guy’s face trying to elicit a reaction…and got one. He shouldn’t have done it, but let’s engage in facts here. That was no sucker punch. They got the reaction they wanted trying to get Lynn thrown out of the game.

      A good guy would s-l-o-w-l-y punch the much bigger guy after first letting him continue to talk trash for an unlimited time and making sure he was ready to engage in fisticuffs.

      It would be pretty interesting telling someone “hey, I’m about to punch you.”

      You guys are right, my bad, punching someone because they said something mean is justifiable. Hope you guys teach your kids that.

      Actually a sucker punch is when a guy isn’t looking. If he is looking you in the eye but has the reflexes of a 90 year old and can’t block your punch then it’s on him. He was arguing and trying to instigate something so he really should have been expecting it which means it is not a sucker punch.

      I can’t speak for anyone else here, but I clearly said he shouldn’t have done it. All I said was you can’t define it as a sucker punch when the other guy(s) were trying to get him to do exactly what he did. Did you see the video from the day before at the race track?



    • ClutchCargo

      Getting involved in a pre-game fight wasn’t the right way to handle it, but if the bigger dude is going to get in somebody’s face like that, getting hit shouldn’t come as a surprise.

    So if they have never bought drugs from him, he didn’t possess a gun or drugs when they raided the place what can they charge him with?

    How many millions of homes in this country contain several loaded guns? Why is that even something to report?

      Lawful vs. unlawful possession of guns.

      Because it was found during a raid of a house they bought drugs from. How stupid are you

      How many other legal acts (specifically protected constitutionally mind you) instantly become illegal due to suspicion of, or other illegal activity?



    • ClutchCargo

      Possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime takes it to a new level, so it is relevant in this case.

    Theres no such thing as an “assault rifle”, their called sporting rifles…. “AR”-15 does not stand for assault rifle, but rather Armalite rifle, named after the company who designed and built the 1st AR-15s…. just a little FYI..
