Five suspects are facing charges after a drug bust Thursday night in Knoxville.

Officers with the Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force executed a search warrant at 1329 South Lincoln Street around 6:30 p.m.

Authorities seized marijuana, prescription drugs, and drug paraphernalia.

Four Knoxville residents were arrested, 19-year-old Jenna Binnsage, 21-year-old Brandon Galvin, 20-year-old Cody Laird and 19-year-old Natasha Flesher.

Authorities also arrested 27-year-old Jonathan Banister of Florida.

In addition to several drug-related charges, Binnsage is charged with child neglect and Galvin is charged with child endangerment. That’s because the couple has a very young child in the home.
