Three people were charged and $15,000 in cash was seized by the Muscogee County Sheriff's Office Investigative Unit after a search warrant was conducted at 6525 Clearwater Drive, a sheriff's office spokesman said Wednesday.
The suspects were identified as Misty Phan, 22, Dexler N. Phan, 22, and Ann Nguyen of Columbus, said spokesman Maj. Joe McCrea. Misty was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and selling marijuana while Drexler Phan was charged with one count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft by receiving stolen property. Nguyen was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
McCrea said no other arrests are planned in the investigation that started about two weeks ago. With assistance of the Special Response Team, deputies found 13 ounces of marijuana, $15,000 in cash and a stolen .38-caliber handgun at the scene.
The sheriff's office plan to seize the cash through the court.
