Four Morgan County residents face multiple charges after a raid on property in Danville that law enforcement says uncovered illegal drugs and firearms. One of the nine firearms was an automatic weapon. 

Mike Swafford, with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office, said the guns had serial numbers filed off and that methamphetamine was also found at the property.

The Morgan County Sheriff's Drug Enforcement Unit and FBI executed a search warrant assisted by Decatur Police S.W.A.T. on a home at the corner of Ironman and Targum roads in Danville on Wednesday afternoon. The property sits at the entrance to Charles H. Sparkman West Park.

Those arrested and now charged are:

▪️ Kenneth David Tittle, 45, of Danville charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. No bond
▪️ Christy Michelle Tittle, 39, of Danville charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. No bond
▪️Jamie McGhee Cheatham, 30, of Hartselle charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond $300
▪️Dennis Dewayne Fite, 35, of Hartselle charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and three outstanding warrants for failing to appear. No bond.

Swafford said because of community tips, the FBI and local law enforcement were able to gather enough information to perform a search warrant. 

"Each tip is a part of a larger puzzle. As you put that together, you’re able to see the whole picture," said Swafford. "So, the moment that you see the full picture is when we can loop in the judges and the DA." 

He said the community gave tips and leads that were helpful. 

"Complaints that we got were just people coming and going at all hours, loud disturbances and altercations," said Swafford. 

Last year, 55 firearms were found at the same location. Children were also involved on the scene and arrests were made. 

In this case, all of those identified will face federal and state charges.
