Three men, 30, 36 and 44, and a 31-year-old woman are facing numerous drug related charges as well as possession of stolen property.

The suspects appeared in court Thursday afternoon.

Members of the break and enter unit continue to investigate and say more charges are expected.

In a separate bust, police arrested two men after executing a search warrant Thursday morning at a home in the 3400-block of Fairlight Drive.

The warrant was executed after a patrol officer witnessed a drug transaction near the residence the previous evening.

The emergency response team assisted with the bust as there was a fear firearms might be present.

The members of the street gang unit, canine and the explosives disposal unit assist with the search.

Police seized 3.3 grams of marijuana, 4 grams of cannabis resin and 2.5 grams of meth. No firearms were recovered.

A 44-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman are facing three charges each of possession.

No names have been released.
