Three people were arrested at a Newnan residence on various drug charges, including possession of methamphetamine.
The arrests on Thursday culminated an undercover investigation where agents purchased meth from the residence at 8 Second Ave., in a neighborhood west of downtown Newnan. Authorities served search warrants Thursday night and arrested the three.
About one-half ounce of "Ice," meth in a crystal form, as well as a stolen weapon were confiscated, according to Major Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff's Office.
Dustin Michael Greene, 27, Jennifer Leigh Sibley, 29, and Sonya Deanne Bragg, 48, were all charged with possession of meth, the major said.
In addition, Greene and Sibley were both charged with possession with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during commission of a crime and receiving stolen property, Yarbrough said. Sibley also was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The investigation continues as investigators check to see if other property in the house was stolen, the major said.
