Four people face drug and gun charges after the Fort Wane Police Department’s vice and narcotics unit and the Allen County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team raided four locations.

Demonta Huddleston, 26, was charged with six counts of dealing methamphetamine, two counts of dealing heroin and one count of being a serious violent felon in possession of a firearm after police entered his apartment at 2838 Northgate Blvd. about 7 a.m. Friday. Investigators found heroin, marijuana, $2,000 cash, drug paraphernalia and a stolen handgun, city police said Tuesday.

Demonta Huddleston was picked up on a traffic violation Thursday night, the night before the drug raids occurred, police said.

Gregory Huddleston, 38, was charged with two counts of dealing methamphetamine and one count of dealing heroin after his home at 3120 Broadway, was raided about 7 a.m. Friday. Police found the drugs and more than $12,000 in cash. Two vehicles were also seized, police said.

Sherinna Haynes, 51, was charged with dealing cocaine, dealing heroin and maintaining a common nuisance after her place at 4911 Lake Ave. was raided at 7:40 a.m.  Friday.

Police said they found a .22-caliber revolver, heroin, cocaine and $1,175 in cash.

The three morning raids led to a fourth raid at 1107 W. Washington Blvd. about 1:30 p.m. Jermesha Davis, 27, was at this home where two stolen handguns, methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin were recovered, police said.

The group was considered a drug trafficking organization and multiple drug buys were conducted over a period of time to document the activity, police said. 

All were being held at the Allen County Jail in lieu of 150,000 bail for Gregory Huddleston and Davis and $100,000 for Haynes, according to court documents.
