Four Frankfort residents are in jail for their alleged involvement in heroin trafficking.
William Jackson, 45, Nicholas Litteral, 21, Calvin West, 24, and Christie Baker, 31, were all arrested Wednesday.
Litteral and West are each being held on $10,200 bonds, charged with one count of trafficking in greater than 2 grams of heroin and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia.
Jackson and Baker are each charged with two counts of trafficking in heroin and buying/possessing drug paraphernalia.
Baker is being held on a $20,200 bond.
Jackson is also charged with tampering with physical evidence, bringing his bond to $30,200.
Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said deputies executed a search warrant at a home on Sequoyah Trail Wednesday as a part of an ongoing drug investigation.
The investigation began, Melton said, after several neighbors complained about large numbers of people coming in and out of the house at all hours.
All four suspects were allegedly inside the house when the search took place.
Melton said deputies found heroin, cash and scales, but said he couldn’t specify an exact amount of money or drugs.
When Jackson got out of a cruiser at the jail, deputies allegedly found another bindle of heroin where he had been sitting. Melton said Jackson had been hiding it somewhere on him, which led to his additional evidence tampering charge.
