Five people were arrested in Collinsville after a raid early Thursday morning.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said agencies with the DeKalb County Drug Task Force, along with the DEA, U.S. Marshalls, ALEA Task Force, DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies and Collinsville Police Department went to a residence on County Road 51 near Collinsville.

Welden said agents served a Drug Enforcement Administration warrant on Johnny Ray Burt, 56, of Collinsville. The warrant was the result of a six-month long investigation by the DEA and DeKalb County Drug Task Force.

Welden said, while at the residence, a search warrant was obtained.

As a result, methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia were discovered and four other individuals at the residence were arrested. Those individuals were Jennifer Burke, 32, of Fyffe, Kirby Hood, 35, of Dawson, Stephanie Solis, 31, of Collinsville, and Timothy White, 39, of Collinsville were all arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance, Unlawful Possession of Marijuana 2nd Degree, Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Loitering in a Drug House.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said teamwork made the investigation a success.

“I’d like to commend our Drug Task Force Agents and our state and federal partners for a job well done in this investigation,” Welden said. “It’s vitally important in the fight to rid our communities of drugs that we work together at the federal, state, county and local level. If we ever want to win this fight, it takes a joint effort by all involved. God Bless.”
