Jackson County sheriff's deputies have shut down what they are calling a large criminal drug enterprise.
Deputies arrested Doyle Brown, Jr., Jonathan Drennen and Hubert Messer following a week long investigation.
Deputies seized more than $30,000 in cash, 44 guns, multiple vehicles and prescription pills from Messer's Stone Lick home. They believe he was the ring leader of the operation. They also say all of those items were either stolen or purchased with drug money.
While deputies say prescription drugs were found in Messer's home, no drug charges have been filed just yet.
All three men are charged with transferring and receiving stolen property.
