BARBOUR COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -  Three people are behind bars tonight in Barbour County after a major drug bust by the Sheriff's Department.

Angela Liptrot, Marcus Brown, and Adrian Johnson, all from Ariton, have been arrested and face drug trafficking and possession charges.

Brown and Johnson have extensive criminal histories that include rape, robbery, and assault.

Their home near Ariton had been under surveillance for several days by narcotics investigators and last night, police seized three pounds of high-grade packaged marijuana, two handguns and high-tech surveillance equipment used to avoid capture.

Authorities were also able to identify several people doing business with them and expect to make additional arrests soon.
