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.

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.
