Demetrius L. Woods, 22; Castillo Suddith, 24; and two minors, all of Troy, were arrested at the scene.

The minor suspects were 18 and 19 years old, and because of their eligibility for youthful offender status, the police department would not release their names.

All face charges of possession of marijuana first degree and possession of a controlled substance, both felonies.

Scarbrough also said officers confiscated marijuana, scales used in weighing marijuana and Loritab synthetic narcotics from the scene.

The four suspects were taken to the Troy City Jail and later transferred to the Pike County Jail, where their bond is set at $15,000 each.

The drug task force is composed of two Troy Police Officers and a Pike County Sheriff’s Department deputy.
