Three face drug charges after warrant served at complex
Police have released additional information about arrests Friday afternoon at a city apartment complex.
On Friday, officers of the Carter County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at 102 Mountain Hollow Court, Building C, Apartment 10, in the Mountain Hollow apartment complex as part of what they said was the result of an ongoing investigation into the possible sale of crack cocaine at that location.
CCSD Capt. Mike Little said on Friday that no one was present in the apartment when officers executed the search warrant, but that later that evening four individuals were arrested in connection with the warrant.
On Tuesday afternoon, Little said that only three of the individuals were actually charged in connection with the investigation.
Little said those charged were:
Cayce Ferguson, 23, charged with maintaining a dwelling where narcotics are manufactured or sold, possession of drug paraphernalia.
James Ferguson, 23, charged with possession of schedule II for resale, sale of schedule II narcotics, conspiracy to sell schedule II narcotics.
David Cummings, 24, charged with possession of schedule II for resale, conspiracy to sell schedule II narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia.
In addition to the arrests, officers also seized a Dodge Stratus and collected evidence from the apartment, Little said. He declined to describe what evidence was collected.
According to Little, the investigation began after the sheriff’s department received “several complaints, not just from people in this neighborhood but throughout the county, regarding the sale of illegal narcotics in these apartments.”
