Six people face drug-related charges after Monroe County authorities served a search warrant at a home suspected of being a source of drug sales and overdoses.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, deputies rounded up the six after going to a home June 16 in the Gudger community south of Madisonville and west of Highway 411.
