DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Undercover agents arrested three people in an early morning raid in DeKalb County.

Channel 2 Action News was the only news station at the scene when police took cash, drugs and guns from two houses in Chamblee.

Police said three people arrested face charges for drug possession and distribution.

Police said Charles Craft and Dwyneil Jones face felony drug charges. Derrick Mcworter faces misdemeanor charges, police said.

Agencies like Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, Chamblee and DeKalb County police, along with Georgia State Patrol were involved.

Channel 2's Liz Artz spoke to the resident involved, who said it all stemmed from a neighbor who is trying to force them out.

Jekeila Azzard told Artz her grandmother's home was one of the houses targeted.

“They busted my grandmother's house at 5, 6 o'clock in the morning,” she said. “She went into a state of shock. They busted her house for a drug bust and they didn't find anything."

She said her grandmother had to be rushed to the hospital after she went into cardiac arrest.
