From the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office:

On Friday, investigators with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department executed a narcotics search warrant at the residence of Johnny Ray Birdwell, located just outside the Reklaw Community in Eastern Cherokee County.

Detectives Fred Butler and Michael Goff obtained a search warrant for the residence after conducting a lengthy narcotics investigation into the sale of narcotics by Birdwell.

The search warrant was executed at approximately 3 p.m. on Friday afternoon. A total of $1,333.00 was seized, as was approximately five ounces of crystal methamphetamine, packaging materials and other drug paraphernalia. Three individuals arrested at the scene were Johnny Ray Birdwell, Brandon Wade Coats, and Donald Ray Guinn Jr.

All three suspects were charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group 1 (greater than four grams, but less than 200 grams), which is a first degree felony. Birdwell is currently on parole for a previous felony conviction, and a will most likely be served with a parole violation in the coming days.

Guinn was also charged with possession of a controlled substance in penalty group one (less than 1 gram), which is a first degree felony.

Detectives located stolen property at the residence, which resulted in a second search warrant being obtained and executed later on the same day.

More charges are possible and will be filed as the investigations are completed.
