Lanett police arrested six people on drug charges while searching for suspects in an armed robbery Thursday.
Police were searching for a man suspected of robbing a Check-In to Cash on Gilmer Avenue earlier the the day, when they received a call that a possible suspect in the case had entered a home on South 5th Avenue with a woman.
Officers went to the address and found it to be the home of Janice Tumbs. Tumbs consented to a search of her home.
During the search, officers found 84 bags of marijuana.
