ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Two Albany men and a woman were arrested in Panama City, Florida in a drug investigation.

Albany drug agents say they're familiar with the three and are helping Florida authorities.

Monday, 27-year old Narda Farmer, 32-year old Derrick Marshall, and 22-year old Venessa Thomas were arrested at a home in Panama City.

Drug agents found nearly 6 grams of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia in the home.

It's not the first-time suspected drug dealers from Albany have been arrested in Panama City.

A.D.D.U. Commander Major Bill Berry said "They actually have an area down in Panama City or in Bay County that they refer to as "little Albany." Because they have arrested a number of Albany residents down there involved in drug deals."

Farmer is charged with possession of crack with intent to distribute.  Marshall with failure to register as a convicted felon, and Thomas for tampering with evidence.
