Four people have been hit with narcotics charges after a raid on a Winding Way home found evidence of a drug distributing operation.
The suspects, Michael James Hill, 22, Anthony Russell Osborne, 26, Brianna Marie Finger, 22, and Zachery Tyler Sartain, 21, are all charged with possession of drugs. They appeared for arraignment this week on their charges and are set for preliminary hearing Aug. 23.
According to sheriff’s investigator Steve Carpenter, a search warrant was served on Osborne’s Winding Way residence and all four of the suspects were found inside.
“There were people in the residence in possession of approximately seven grams of methamphetamine,” Carpenter said, noting Osborne admitted ownership of the drugs when questioned. “He admitted to selling the meth to those subjects (at his house).”
A search of the house revealed numerous baggies and scales, backing up Osborne’s confession he was selling meth. A container was also located in the bathroom with another 1.5 grams of meth.
At the same time Osborne was being arrested, lawmen searched a vehicle belonging to Hill that was parked outside the house.
“Located in Mr. Hill’s car was a safe containing baggies, digital scales and a bag of meth weighing eight grams,” Carpenter said.
Also found in the car was Sartain, who was sitting in the backseat. A gram of meth was found lying next to where he was sitting.
The discoveries were not over even when deputies took the four to jail. During booking, officers found two bags of meth, weighing a combined seven grams, on Finger’s person. She had been arrested after she was found in the house in possession of pills for which she did not have a prescription.
