Neighbors are absolutely by the devastated news, and heart broken for the two young kids. They tell WCCB nothing like this has ever happened in their neighborhood, and they just want to make sure the two young children are safe and sound.
Lincoln County Sheriff Deputies showed up to a house on the 2700 block of Hull-McGinnis Road and arrested four people, while two kids were inside.
“I just feel sorry for them. to be brought up in that. they could’ve been hurt,” says neighbor Michelle Brown.
Officers say they found 26 grams of the highly powerful and dangerous drug–methamphetamine. along with guns, wads of cash and drug paraphernalia.
“It broke my heart to hear they were up there. to imagine what they’ve been through,” says Kim Bailey who also lives nearby.
Stephen Wayne Blanton, Tracy Michelle Blanton, and Ethan James Johnson, face several drug, weapons and child abuse charges. Robin Wayne Estep was served with an outstanding warrant. WCCB knocked on the door where deputies say the meth bust happened, and people where home but told us to leave. Neighbors are hurting for the the children, who they tell WCCB are ten and two year old girls.
“I was devastated. i couldn’t believe that he would bring those girls up after the life they already had.”
