5 arrests, 2 suspects at large in White Co. drug busts

By Katie Crumley
CLEVELAND - Four separate investigations came to an end Friday, following a series of drug-related arrests in White County.

Mitchell Posey with the Appalachian Drug Task Force said Amos Ferguson, Tammy Fry and Caleb Morris were all arrested after a number of prescription pills were discovered during a search of a home on Hazelnut Drive.

He said they're still looking for two others in connection with a separate investigation.

"Logan Sellers, arrest warrants have been issued for him for distribution of marijuana, but we currently cannot locate him, along with Alexander Hamilton," he said.

Posey said additional arrests include Samuel Lockwood and Jeannie Andrews, who were arrested for possession of marijuana following a traffic stop.

He asks anyone with information about the two missing suspects' whereabouts to contact authorities.
