Four people are behind bars after six law enforcement agencies raided a home on Hill Street in Parkersburg Wednesday evening.

Officers severed a search warrant at 713 Hill Street after receiving multiple reports of drug activity at that home.

It all happened at about 8:20 Wednesday evening.

Deputies from the Wood County Sheriff's Office, the Parkersburg Police Department, the task force, members of the SWAT team, the West Virginia State Police, the DNR and the U.S. Marshals assisted in the search.

They arrested four people as a result of the raid.

Kwante Johnson is charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

Christopher Grinter had a warrant out for his arrest for delivery of crack cocaine.

Paige Price was also wanted for domestic battery, obstruction and assaulting an officer.

Officers also captured Patrick Wayne Riggs, a fugitive from Michigan.

Riggs was on the run from charges of transferring and receiving stolen property, criminal sexual conduct, assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence.

"We share information daily which really has been fruitful. No longer can someone avoid us figuring out something about them because we're sharing every bit of information we get," Parkersburg Police Sergeant, Greg Collins.

Wednesday night, Riggs was arraigned at the Wood County Circuit Court while the other three were arraigned at the Magistrate Court.
