( Hamilton ) - Three people are in custody after a drug raid in Hamilton on South B Street near Franklin.
A joint operation with Hamilton Vice, West Chester PD, SWAT, and the Butler County Sheriff's department ended with the seizure of 26 grams of methamphetamine, some marijuana, and a shotgun.
The homeowner, 35-year-old James Pergram, is charged with possession, trafficking, having weapons under disability, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police say 35-year-old Stephanie Houston of New Miami was in the house at the time. Police say she had a hypodermic needle and admitted to throwing a "cook spoon" in the garbage. She's accused of possession of drug instruments and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Also arrested, 33-year-old Steven Baker of New Miami. Police say he admitted to marijuana possession and gave a fake name at first because he thought he had a child support warrant.
Police say Butler County Sheriff's Deputies were conducting a related search at a separate address at the same time, so there may be more arrests coming.
