The combined efforts of the CIPD (Cherokee Indian Police Dept.) Criminal Interdiction Team, the Cherokee Marshal and Community Supervision Service, Tribal ALE, and the CIPD Narcotics Division – with support from the DEA Task Force and the Office of the Tribal Prosecutor – resulted in the drug-related arrests of three individuals in the Settacoo Cove Road Area on Tuesday, Sept. 21.
Justin Michael Arch, a 39-year-old male of Cherokee, was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance.
Hannah Faye Calhoun, a 36-year-old female of Cherokee, and John Wesley Raby (photo unavailable), a 35-year-old male of Cherokee, were both charged with Drug Trafficking.
At this time, the above defendants have only been charged with these crimes and should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
“The work surrounding these arrests is truly ‘One Team—One Fight’ in action. Our collective efforts make for a stronger presence and a safer community here in Cherokee,” stated Cherokee Chief of Police Josh Taylor.
