Three men were arrested and charged in Jackson County last week after police along with the District III Drug and Violent Crimes Force, executed a search warrant at a home in the 300 block of East Liveoak in Altus.

According to Altus Police, investigators recovered a firearm, marijuana plants and what they believed to be heroin.

37-year-old Greggory Lopez, 34-year-old Antonio Lopez both from Altus, and 31-year-old Jason Banda of Dallas, Texas were taken into custody on charges of possession of a controlled and dangerous substance with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.

Banda also faces charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle from Dallas County, Texas.

All three are set to appear in court on May 21.
