HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- What started out as a noise complaint at a residence in Huntington, ends with five people in jail on drug charges.

Police say they went to the apartment in Marcum Terrace about 2:30 Thursday morning to check out the complaint.

Once at the residence, officers say they observed the occupants cooking, cutting and drying crack cocaine in the kitchen area, according to the criminal complaint.
