Sheriff's deputies arrested three adults and two juveniles Monday night on charges of residential entry and drug possession.
Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputies and Hanover Police responded to a call of a possible burglary in progress at about 7 p.m. in the 2100 block of South Beach Drive in the Hanover Beach area.
When officers arrived at the scene, they saw a car leaving the driveway near the residence in question. Officers pulled over the vehicle with four occupants and were told the fifth suspect was still inside the home. Sheriff's Deputy Josh Cochran and K-9 Glock arrested the fifth suspect in the home without incident, according to a news release.
Officers searched each of the suspects and found marijuana and prescription pills, the release said.
The home is believed to be owned by a relative of one of the five suspects, and officers are still investigating the incident.
The suspects include: Christian Featherstone, 18, Madison, who faces charges of residential entry and possession of a controlled substance; Jacob Webster, 21, Madison, who faces charges of residential entry; Patrick Otten, 18, Madison, who faces charges of residential entry..
Featherstone has a pending felony arson charge from an unrelated incident at the Madison State Hospital.
Featherstone, Webster and Otten were taken to the Jefferson County Jail and await their initial hearings.
In addition to the three adults, a male juvenile, 16, Madison, faces charges of residential entry and possession of a controlled substance; while a male juvenile, 15, Pendelton, Ky., faces charges of residential entry and possession of marijuana.
The Madison Courier does not identify juvenile suspects unless they are charged as adults.
