A search warrant was obtained and executed at Baxley’s and Sedam’s residence at 1026 N. First St., resulting in the three arrests. Four juveniles were taken into police protective custody due to the conditions at the residence.
A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
