Lenoir police arrested two men and a woman after finding drugs and a stolen gun Thursday in their home in the 200 block of Norwood Street.
The investigation began several months ago as a direct result of citizen complaints, Lenoir Police Chief Scott Brown said Friday.
Investigators executed a search warrant on the home Thursday and seized Oxycodone pills, marijuana and a 9mm handgun that had been reported stolen to the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office on March 18.
Investigators charged Jasmine Paige Alexander, 38, with simple possession of a schedule VI controlled substance; Keenan Antonio Dula, 19, with possession of a stolen firearm; and Xzavian Jerrod Dula, 20, with possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a schedule II controlled substance and misdemeanor larceny. All are free on bail.
