Drug bust

Four people were arrested late Friday night, after Urbana Police executed a search warrant at a home in the 200 block of East Reynolds Street as part of an undercover drug investigation.

According to information from the Urbana Police Division, Brenda Minnifield, 51, Cullen Minnifield, 20, Shelby McCullough, 18 and Dylan McCullough, 20 all of 239 E. Reynolds St., Apt. B, were arrested on charges of drug abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia. Brenda Minnifield will also face a charge of endangering children, because police said they believe illegal drugs were used in the presence of a 19-month-old baby. Additional charges may be pending.

Officers executed the search warrant at about 10:30 p.m., and officers confiscated drugs - including marijuana - and drug paraphernalia, according to information from the Urbana Police Division.

Matt Lingrell, chief of the Urbana Police Division, said Children’s Services was notified and is opening an investigation into the incident. Authorities were tipped off that drugs were being sold from the residence due to undercover investigations and tips they received while investigating other cases.
