A warrant service to a Sioux Falls home last week resulted in six drug arrests, Sioux Falls police said.

The Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force served a warrant to 1003 N. Van Epps Ave. on Dec. 2. The warrant covered the property, the residents and anyone who was at the home, public information officer Sam Clemens said.

Howard Thomas, 46, and his son Corey Thomas, 22, were both arrested after officers found 10 grams of marijuana, 26 grams of meth, scales, jewelers bags, and $460 in cash at the home.

Corey faces charges of possession of a controlled drug, paraphernalia, distribution of a controlled drug, maintaining a place where drugs are kept, possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute in a drug free zone, possession with intent to distribute marijuana less than half an ounce and unauthorized articles in jail. Police say that as Corey was switching from street clothes to a jail uniform, he tried to conceal a clonazepam pill, which is a schedule 4 controlled substance.

Howard Thomas was charged with controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, marijuana, intent to distribute marijuana, paraphernalia, drug free zone violation and maintaining a place for the use or sale of a controlled substance.

Police said four others were in a car in the Thomas' driveway, and those people were also arrested.

Inside the car, officers found marijuana, meth, scales, bags, 4.3 grams of a substance police believe to be K-2 and a handgun.

Brittany Laframboise, 21, Aaron Babb, 26, and Timothy Lawrence, 25, all of Sioux Falls, as well as Angellya Anthony, 22, of Oacoma, were all charged with possession of a controlled substance, paraphernalia, possession with intent to distribute, drug free violation and marijuana.
