Sheriff Barry Babb said deputies on March 28 at 4:18 a.m. responded to a burglary call at an unoccupied West Lane residence, hearing music coming from the residence and observing people peeking out a window.
Inside the residence, deputies found marijuana, digital scales, suspected Ecstasy, a handgun and counterfeit $100 bills, Babb said.
Babb said the group was detained without incident, maintaining that the door was unlocked and that they were “hanging out” at the residence.
