Seven people are in custody after the joint drug task force from the Carter County Sheriff’s Office and Elizabethton Police Department executed a search warrant on Bill Nave Loop early Thursday morning.

Investigators found a quantity of methamphetamine and several prescription medications inside the residence. They also discovered several items of drug paraphernalia, both for selling and consuming narcotics.

Officers found suspects Jared Carrier and Tonya Goulds had outstanding warrants and placed them under arrest. Keith Fortner, Clarence Lunceford, Jeffery Lunceford, Sharla Morgan and Mary Woods were arrested on new charges. All seven are being held in the Carter County Detention Center.
