NEWPORT-Seven people were arrested and $696 in cash seized in a Johnson Street residence where drug activity had been taking place, on Monday, March 4, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

A 19-month-old infant girl was removed, which Cocke County Sheriff Armando Fontes babysat until a Department of Children's Services employee came to the sheriff's department and picked her up, according to the sheriff.

"This bust was made possible by narcotics agents and deputies with the Cocke County Sheriff's Department," wrote Sheriff Fontes in a press release.

Narcotics officers went to 441 Johnson Street to do a "knock and talk" over suspected drug activity at the residence. Officers gained written consent to search from the homeowner, and verbal agreement from other people in the residence, according to a report by Sgt. Robert Thornton, and Deputy Sheriffs Heath Willis and K9 Officer Blaine Lewis.

The people arrested are: Jamie Marie Bryant, Vivian Gail Bryant, Dennis O. Johnson, Nancy Ann Johnson, Warren Williams, Joshua A. Cameron, and Wendy Williams.
