Three people are in custody after a drug raid by the Corpus Christi Police Department Friday.
SWAT teams stormed into a home on the 2500 block of Guadalupe Street, where residents were suspected of trafficking crack. The Narcotics Vice Investigations Division seized powder cocaine, pills, a .380 semiautomatic pistol and three gun silencers, the discovery of which may get the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives involved.
According to police, they have been investigating the home for weeks. They obtained a search warrant and went in just before 11 a.m. Friday. Because of a locked gate in front of the home, police asked the SWAT team to make entry and secure the location before they went in.
Police said there were between 10-12 people inside the home at the time, including a pregnant woman. One man, and two women were arrested.
39-year old Dirk Johnson and 33-year old Doris Johnson were taken in and charged with possession of a controlled substance. Additionally, 32-year old Kimberly Lehmberg was arrested while she tried to flee the scene. She has been charged with driving without a driver's license and for not having vehicle insurance.
Police said Dirk Johnson may be also face charges of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm after confirming his criminal history.
The investigation will continue and additional charges may be filed.
