At least three people were arrested after a search warrant was served by the Covington/Newton County Special Investigation Unit with the help of the Newton County SWAT team Wednesday morning on Lakeview Drive.

At least two males and one female were arrested and transported from the house at 10134 Lakeview Drive around 10 a.m. Items found at the house included sawed off shotguns.

Neighbors said the current residents had been there for about a couple of months and that the strong smell of marijuana could sometimes be smelled coming from the house. 

Passerby Steve Bray, who has family and friends in the neighborhood, said "I'm glad they came out and took action."

"Landlords need to be more dilligent in screening their tennants and observing and being aware of what is taking place in the property they own."
