VINTON COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Four people recently were arrested in a warrant sweep that turned up suspected drugs at a home in the 37000 block of Murphy Road in McArthur, according to information from the Vinton County Sheriff's Office.

Emzy Mullins, 57, of McArthur, was arrested on a warrant from Athens County, Ohio.

Also inside the home was Scott A Kight, 30, of McArthur, who was arrested on a warrant from Jackson County, Ohio, and Rashella Nickells, 30 of McArthur, who was arrested on a warrant out of Athens County.

During a check of the home, Sharon K. Slutcher, 30 of Columbus, Ohio, was found hiding inside a closet in one of the bedrooms. Slutcher was arrested on a warrant out of Franklin County, Ohio.

Deputies received permission to search from Mullins. A search of the home was then conducted and several drug items were found, including a ball of brown tar substance that is believed to be heroin, a bag containing what's suspected as bath salts and drug paraphernalia.

The suspected drug items will be sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation Lab for further processing. The investigation has been forwarded to the Prosecuting Attorney for review.

Deputies said they received a tip on Thursday about suspected drug activity that led them to the home.
