Authorities say two Binghamton women and a man from Georgia face felony weapon and drug charges as a result of the raid on Schubert Street.

Investigators say 25-year-old Octavia Moffett and 22-year-old Bryana Gabriel were arrested Thursday afternoon. 43-year-old Tyrone Cherry of Marietta, Georgia, also was taken into custody.

According to the Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force, two nine millimeter guns were discovered in the apartment. One of the weapons had been reported stolen.

Police also confiscated crack cocaine and about $1,500 in money believed to be linked to drug sales. Digital scales, drug packaging materials and cellphones also were seized.

The suspects were being held at Binghamton police headquarters pending their arraignment in city court.
