Middletown police arrested three people Tuesday during the execution of a narcotics search warrant at a home on Silver Street.

Police said they had been receiving numerous calls and complaints about drug activity at the home while children were present.

Officers said when they arrived, they located three children, ages 17, 14 and 10, in the home along with more than five pounds of marijuana.

Police arrested 40-year-old Christian McClain, his girlfriend, 34-year-old Jimail Taylor, and 30-year old Darick White.

In addition to the narcotics, police located a body armor vest in the basement, packaging materials, scales, numerous cell phones and a large sum of cash. Police said they also located a black Suzuki motorcycle in the breezeway of the home with the VIN number etched off. The bike was seized and the investigation into it is ongoing.

The Department of Children and Families was contacted.

McClain, Taylor and White were all charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and two counts of risk of injury to a minor. McClain and Taylor were also charged with operating a drug factory. 

McClain is being held on a $200,000 bond; he was also charged with criminal possession of body armor. Taylor and White are being held on $25,000 bonds.
