3 people at the home were arrested, 45-year-old Henry Matt Smith, 30-year-old Chasity J. Roop, and 49-year-old Jimmy A. Davis.  All were charged with trafficking in a controlled substance.  Since all three are convicted felons, they were also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The three were sent to the Knox County Detention Center.
