ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - Monroe County sheriff's deputies have arrested six people on drug charges.

Three of the arrests happened on South Harmony Road -- Blake Dozier, 19, of Eldridge, Alabama, Rickey Dozier, 22, of Amory and Brittany Reeves, 19, of Amory -- after the home had been watched by law enforcement for several months.

Sheriff Cecil Cantrell says methamphetamine was found and the three may face additional charges because children were found at the location.

The other three were arrested during traffic stops in Nettleton: James Clayton, 42, of Tupelo, Rodney Lynk, 42, of Nettleton and John Seymore Junior, 42, of Nettleton.

Cantrell says Clayton had cocaine while the other two had meth.
