KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Three people are facing numerous charges after being busted for drugs Thursday.

Knoxville police say they executed a search warrant just before 5 p.m. at a home on the 2500 block of Woodbine Avenue.

Officers obtained the warrant after conducting several controlled purchases of crack cocaine from occupants at the house.

The search of the residence produced 83 grams of crack cocaine, 57 grams of powder cocaine, two handguns, a rifle, money, five cell phones, Pyrex and other paraphernalia.  There was also evidence of a fencing operation.

Police arrested Jeffrey Stanley Mitchell, 40, for violation of a drug free school zone, possession of a weapon during the commission of a dangerous felony, felon in possession of a firearm and theft.

Jalisa Ross, 22, was charged with violation of a drug free school zone.

Anthony Mitchell, 45, was arrested on two outstanding warrants. He has previously served federal time for conspiracy to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm, and then a later charge for escape from a federal corrections facility.
