Federal and local authorities raided two East Patchogue homes Wednesday morning as part of a narcotics investigation, police said. 

"The Suffolk County Police Department executed two search warrants in East Patchogue this morning," the police department said in an email. "The search warrants were pertaining to ongoing narcotics investigations."

The warrants were executed at homes on Woodside and Mount Vernon avenues, police said. 

Suffolk police officers, as well as officers from ICE's Homeland Security Investigations — some wearing shirts identifying themselves as part of the "Gang Unit" — and the NYPD were observed at the homes. 

Officers were seen removing high-intensity lights and trash bags full of unidentified items from the homes. 

Neither the NYPD nor an HSI spokeswoman immediately provided comment. 

Suffolk police declined to provide additional information, including whether any arrests were made, citing an ongoing investigation.
