Janesville police arrested three people early Wednesday after an armed-subject report revealed drugs at a local residence, police reported.

Officers responded to a report of an armed person at 12:32 a.m. Wednesday at 300 E. Racine St. A nearby resident said a man had pointed a gun during a verbal exchange, according to a police department news release.
