JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - During an early morning drug bust, Craighead County sheriff's deputies seized nearly 30 grams of meth and arrested three people.

Shortly after midnight, deputies conducted a probation search of a home in the 2500-block of Brooke McQueen.

During the search, deputies reported finding 28.98 grams of methamphetamine (ICE), valued at $2,540.

They also found a "lot of drug paraphernalia," including digital scales and glass pipes with suspected methamphetamine residue, and hypodermic needles.

After finding the alleged evidence, an investigator advised 59-year-old Regina Faye Houston, who lives at the home, of her Miranda rights.

During questioning, Houston reportedly admitted to selling meth recently.

Deputies arrested Houston, 59, of Jonesboro on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with the purpose to deliver greater than 10 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Deputies also arrested two other people living at the home, 39-year-old Kerry Angela Wilson and 40-year-old Preston Scott Ergle.

They charged Wilson with possession of a controlled substance less than two grams, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a parole violation.

Ergle faces charges of possession of a controlled substance less than two grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.
