MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Three people are in jail and one on the run after two drug busts in Morgan County.

Deputies busted four people Tuesday night in Somerville in two separate incidents.

Morgan County deputies and Priceville Police went to a house on East Street to do a knock and talk and check things out.

The homeowner, Johnathan Moore, let them inside. Agents found two pot plants growing in the bathroom as well as stolen guns.

Right now, Moore is charged with possession of marijuana but he likely faces additional charges because of the stolen guns.

When deputies were at Moore's home, they got a call of a domestic disturbance on Parker Road in the Union Hill area.

When deputies arrived, they found Connie Rigsby Sloan and her sister, April Rigsby, along with ingredients to make meth.

Investigators said Sloan was pregnant and had been using meth throughout the pregnancy.

Deputies said a third person, Benjamin Sloan, ran from the house before they got there.

The Rigsby sisters were arrested and face multiple drug charges.

If you have any information on Sloan's whereabouts, contact the Morgan County Sheriff's department.
