Three Athens County residents are in jail after police raided a home on State Route 550.

The Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested Jerry Smith, 29; Kristen Swiney, 23; and Jason Smith, 31; and charged them with parole violations.

Investigators found heroin, paraphernalia and money inside the home.

The house is located at 10731 State Route 550 in Athens.

Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly said the house has been the target of an investigation since deputies arrested a man who lived at the house for trafficking heroin last year.

Jason Shaffer was convicted and sentenced to 59 months in prison.
