Marines from Regimental Combat Team 3, Marine Expeditionary Brigade-Afghanistan and Afghan National Army soldiers raided an insurgent stronghold Saturday in the town of Lakari, Garmsir District, Marine officials say.

The raid uncovered several weapons caches – including supplies to make improvised explosive devices - and a stockpile of Afghan National Army uniforms, used by insurgents in ambush attacks, according to a press release from the MEB.

The force also discovered "a signifcant quantity of illegal drugs," which help fund the insurgents, according to the release.

There were no reports of ANA or civilian casualties, or damage to civilian property.
