Five people faced methamphetamine trafficking charges during a 9 a.m. Recorder's Court hearing Friday after they were arrested at the Extended Stay Hotel on Armour Road.
Brad Harden, 43, Jennifer Howze, 33, Keisha Campbell, 39, Kristopher Carver, 26, and Kayla Price, 25, were charged with trafficking meth, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of drug related objects. Price was additionally charged with possession and use of drug related objects and possession of marijuana.
Police Capt. Gil Slouchick said officers confiscated 6.83 ounces of meth Thursday while executing two search warrants: one at the Extended Stay Hotel room where the five people were arrested, and one at an Uncle Bob's Self Storage unit which was rented in Price's name. The meth is valued at more than $19,000.
Two stolen guns belonging to officers were also uncovered. One was a standard pistol used by Columbus Police officers. The other was an AR-15 Bushmaster which belongs to a Phenix City police officer, Slouchick said. It was found loaded in the storage shed.
Total bond amounts were not available for the Haden, Howze, Campbell, Carver and Price Friday morning. More information will be added as it becomes available.
