Special Operations Unit agents apprehended five people Monday after a weeks-long investigation into a suspected Luna Drive drug house, according to Recorder's Court testimony.
Henry Register, 66, Karen Gaddis, 52, Mario Senior, 34, Dawn Erb, 31, and Amanda Moseley, 28, faced the following charges during Wedesday's hearing: three counts of possession of controlled substances, possession of marijuana, possession of dangerous drugs, drugs outside original container and possession of drug related objects.
Moseley (also known by the surname Verner) faced an additional violation of probation charge; Senior faced unrelated charges for burglary and two counts of battery with physical harm.
Agents found the five suspects scattered throughout the 5722 Luna Drive home when they began the raid at about 4:20 p.m, an agent told the court. Inside, they found 5.5 grams of marijuana, less than a gram of methamphetamine, three Hydrocodone pills, 30 Amphetamine, 18 Cymbalta, 19 Xanax, 29 Respiradone and two unknown white pills.

Police also found numerous meth-positive syringes and spoons, digital scales and plastic baggies, the agent told the court.
None of the suspects claimed possession of the drugs during the raid, the agent said. Senior, who admitted to selling drugs at the house in the past, said he was there on other business. Erb admitted an addiction to pain pills and meth, and said she preferred drug use by injection. Gaddis claimed the drug related objects found in her room, but claimed she was set up, according to testimony.
An additional suspect, whose name was not available, was rushed to Midtown Medical Center for overdose after agents learned she ingested 20 pills. That person will be arrested after medical treatment is complete.
Judge Michael Joyner set a $11,750 bond for each suspect for the drug related charges. Senior was given an additional $3,000 for his burglary and battery with physical harm charges.
