TOWN CREEK — A raid on a suspected drug house here Friday at 4:30 a.m. led to four arrests, including a juvenile, said Town Creek Police Chief Jerry L. Garrett. Residents had complained about activity at 313 Bradley St. during the past year, and authorities were able to get enough evidence for a search warrant, Garrett said.

According to the chief, police arrested Christoryius Lavar Goode, 23, of 2121 Bradley St.; Joseph Steven Langham, 21, of 313 Bradley St.; Takaya Lashay Stover, 19, of 3053 Lawrence County 434, Trinity; and a juvenile.

Garrett said Goode also had a warrant for a previous charge.

Garrett said police charged all four with “various drug-related charges,” including illegal possession of prescription medication. An officer at the Lawrence County Jail said Saturday night they remained in jail on bonds of $2,000 each.

Police transferred the juvenile to the Juvenile Detention Center in Tuscumbia. Members of the Lawrence County Drug Task Force and the Moulton Police Department assisted Town Creek in the arrests.
