Franklin County narcotics officers arrested four people Wednesday while investigating reports of suspected drug activity at a home near St. Clair.

Three of the people were arrested on outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court on various charges, said Detective Cpl. Scott Briggs with the Franklin County Narcotics Enforcement Unit.

They are: Roger L. Sohn, 31, St. Clair, Donita S. Watson, 23, Sullivan, and Kevin R. Hunt, 21, St. Clair. The fourth suspect arrested, a 27-year-old St. Clair man, was booked on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia. His name was not released because he has not been formally charged.

Briggs said officers went to a home in the 1200 blockof Forest Hills Drive, off Highway 30, about 3 p.m. Wednesday after receiving tips about suspicious activity at the home.

While the officers were standing outside in front of the house, a car pulled up with three people inside. They sped off but were caught after a short pursuit.

Inside the house, officers found six other people in the basement. After obtaining a search warrant, they seized some drug paraphernalia, Briggs said.
