Three people were arrested in their Sterling home Tuesday night for possession of methamphetamine and concealed firearms, according to a prepared statement from the Alaska State Troopers.

Troopers intercepted a package, which contained 47 grams of meth, before delivering it empty to the Dutch Landing Loop house where the suspects lived at 5:45 p.m., according to troopers.

David J. Quayle, 40, Lesha A. Lindley, 35, and Roseann M. Garcia, 33, all from Anchorage, were arrested for possession of drugs after police found more meth,  packaging materials, a scale, pipes and two concealable firearms in the house, according to troopers.

The South Central Areawide Narcotics Unit along with the Western Alaska Alcohol and Narcotics Team fulfilled the warrant and made the arrests.

According to troopers, the three were taken to Wildwood Pretrial Facility, where they remain without bail pending their arraignment hearings.
