Three more suspects in custody

Three more suspects are in custody following Friday’s early morning drug raid. All three turned themselves in, with one giving himself over to law enforcement Monday morning.

Butler county officers executed 31 arrest warrants against suspected drug dealers. The Advocate reported 19 total suspects were in custody as of 4 p.m. Friday afternoon.

The addition of these three individuals brings the total to 22.

Investigator Travis Johnson called it a “successful Friday afternoon,” adding that it is not unusual for suspects to give themselves up.

“These persons had nowhere to hide,” Johnson said. “They can’t hole themselves up in their houses forever.”

Those arrested as of 10:30 a.m. Tuesday morning and their charges:

– Mason Hartley, unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.

– Teresa Edwards, unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.

– Brandon McCall, unlawful distribution of a controlled substance.
