Elba Drug Bust

Authorities in rural Coffee County say they've hit the jackpot. A complaint of possible drug activity at a home in Elba sent several people to jail.

Police arrested the homeowner, 42-year-old Kenneth Michael Queen along with 40-year-old Richard Smith.

Two women, 23-year-old Olivia Foley of Elba and 22-year-old Krystal Dawn Hudson of Kinston, tried to flee the scene, but were quickly arrested as well.

Queen and the two women were already on probation for drug convictions.

All four are charged with manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine.

Several guns and $2500 were also confiscated in the raid.

Elba Police Chief Ronnie Whitworth says the community deserves the credit for helping to lead them to the suspects.
