Vernon -- A late night raid by the Washington County Drug Task Force landed three in jail, on felony drug charges.
Arrested were 57-year-old Bernard James Longo, 39-year-old Tina Louise Stagner, and 25-year-old Santana Marie Longo. All face felony possession of marijuana charges, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Longo and Stanger face additional charges as well, including possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
Authorities say the raid was authorized after an investigation that included several undercover drug buys from the home, and resulted in the recovery of what they will only say was a “large amount” of marijuana and controlled substances.
The 3-year-child of one of the residents arrested was in the home at the time of the raid and was placed in the custody of Department of Children and Families.
