Cherokee Co. Sheriff's Office:

CHEROKEE COUNTY (KYTX) - On Friday April 26, 2013 investigators with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Department executed a narcotics search warrant at the residence of 63-year-old Johnny Ray Birdwell, located just outside the Reklaw Community in Eastern Cherokee County.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for the residence after conducting a lengthy narcotics investigation into the sale of narcotics by Birdwell.

The search warrant was executed at approximately 3 p.m. on Friday afternoon, and a total of $1,333.00 was seized, as was approximately 5oz of crystal methamphetamine, packaging materials and other drug paraphernalia. 

Three individuals arrested at the scene were Birdwell, 44-year-old Brandon Wade Coats of Rusk, and 41-year-old Donald Ray Guinn Jr of Jacksonville.

All three men are charged with Manufacture / Delivery of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 (Greater than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams), which is a first degree felony. 

Birdwell is currently on parole for a previous felony conviction, and a will most likely be served with a parole violation in the coming days.

Guinn was also charged with Possession of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1 (Less than 1 gram), which is a first degree felony.

Detectives located stolen property at the residence, which resulted in a second search warrant being obtained and executed later on the same day.

More charges are possible and will be filed as the investigations are completed.
