According to the sheriff's office, one of the suspects arrested on Friday was wanted in a recent burglary and theft of a Mercedes. During the searches, officials seized meth, cash, guns and drug paraphernalia. The sheriff's office says one of those guns was stolen.
The sheriff's office says one of the searches was at a residence on Elk River Mills Road and the other was at a residence on Chris Way. At one of the locations, a suspect, Kenny Haggermaker, exited through a trap door that was in his bedroom floor and was arrested after a brief foot pursuit, the sheriff's office says.
