BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - On Sept. 20, investigators with the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force, along with representatives of the Helena Police Department, executed a narcotics search warrant in the 1400 block of Secretariat Drive in Helena.

The suspects are identified by authorities as 22-year-old Nicolas Darrell Blackburn, 22-year-old Tyrin Christopher Davis and 21-year-old Brandon Juwan Sledge. A fourth suspect, 18-year-old Ashlyn Grace Dill, was also on scene and subsequently charged with second-degree unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
