Three women and a man were charged late Thursday after the Metro Narcotics Task Force found meth and forged bills inside a Columbus home on Warm Springs Road.
The suspects were identified as Geena Blanton, 28, of Phenix City; Elvina Padgett, 33, of Columbus; Rachel Wombles, 32, of Columbus and Joseph Nevels, 32, of Phenix City. Each was charged with one count of possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of a drug related object, a felon in possession of a firearm, theft by receiving stolen property and second-degree forgery.
Each was still being held at the Muscogee County Jail after a 2 p.m. Friday hearing in Recorder’s Court. Bonds ranged from $40,000 to $45,000 each on all the charges.
In a report, a special agent said each was in possession of a quantity of meth during an 8 p.m. search at 2913 Warm Springs Road. Agents also found a stolen .45-caliber Glock pistol.
