Two search warrants in Washington County land four in jail.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says it all started about 2:30 Thursday morning.

The Major Crimes Task Force first started with a search of Rhonda Martin's home at 100A Linwood Ave. in Marietta.

Agents says they found drug paraphernalia and baggies with drug residue on them.

Martin is charges with possession of drugs and permitting drug use.

They say Martin's daughter, Brittany Martin, also lived at the home, but was not there at the time.

Later in the morning, agents executed a second search warrant, this time at a Marietta hotel room.

Agents say there they found Brittany Martin and Dwayne Fowler. In the room they say there was over 5 grams of crack cocaine, twelve Percocet and over $600.

The Sheriff's Office says Fowler came to the area three to four times a week with a minimum of five grams of crack cocaine a time.

Both Fowler and Martin face two counts of possession of cocaine, a fourth degree and fifth degree felony.

While searching the hotel room, agents say they came into contact with Jacqueline Groves, in a different room. They say she gave permission to have her room searched, in which they say they found drug paraphernalia. Groves was arrested on a parole violation charge. She was on parole out of Franklin County for a previous drug offense.

All four are in the Washington County Jail.
