Alaska State Troopers arrested three Anchorage residents at a Sterling home Tuesday night on charges related to the possession and distribution of methamphetamines.

According to a Wednesday AST dispatch, troopers arrested David J. Quayle, 40, Lesha A. Lindley, 35, and Rosann M. Garcia, age 33, at about 5:45 p.m. after making a controlled delivery of a package containing 47 grams of meth to a home off Dutch Landing Loop.

The bust was conducted by AST’s Southcentral Areawide Narcotics Unit and Anchorage elements of the Western Alaska Alcohol and Narcotics Team, following an examination of the package.

“Upon delivery of the parcel, the parcel was opened by the suspects and investigators executed a search warrant on the residence,” troopers wrote. “A further search resulted in locating additional methamphetamine, drug packaging materials, a scale, pipes commonly used in the consumption of methamphetamine and at least two concealable firearms.”

AST spokesperson Megan Peters says Quayle, Lindley and Garcia were each charged with four counts, including third-degree and fourth-degree misconduct involving controlled substances, third-degree misconduct involving weapons, and tampering with physical evidence.

Soldotna troopers took the three suspects to the Wildwood Pretrial Facility, where they were held without bail pending arraignment.
