Three people were arrested Thursday morning after officers in SWAT gear found cocaine during a search of a Cedar Rapids house.

The Cedar Rapids police department's special response team assisted with the search warrant around 11 a.m. at 1424 K St. SW. They discovered 44 individually wrapped baggies of crack cocaine, according to court documents.

Kenneth L. Williams, 30, and Latara C. Lumpkin, 23, who live at the house, were arrested, along with another man. Williams and Lumpkin are charged with possession of cocaine with intent to deliver and possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia, along with a drug tax stamp violation.

According to court documents, officers found scales and packaging materials in the house.

The other man was arrested on suspicion of gatherings where controlled substances are unlawfully used, but has not been formally charged with a crime.

All three individuals were taken to the Linn County Jail.
