(WBIR - Lafollette, TN) A school bus driver and two others are facing felony drug charges tied to an ongoing investigation in Campbell County.

The Campbell County Sheriff's Department said Bobby Giles, Melissa Poston and Christopher Crabtree are known "drug dealers" and their arrests come after "numerous" citizen complaints.

Deputies arrested all three suspects over the last few days. In all, investigators said they seized just over $2000.00 in cash, two vehicles and nearly two pounds of "pressure packed green leafy substance" believed to be marijuana.

According to Donnie Poston, Director of Schools for Campbell County, Melissa Poston worked for a private school bus contractor that works with the county schools. She will not be allowed to drive pending the outcome of the case.

 A CCSD spokesperson said Giles, Poston and Crabtree were working together to funnel drugs into Campbell County.
