They allegedly found methamphetamine, heroin, MDMA, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, marijuana and pills. The woman, whose age was given as 23 years old, and a man, who was reported as 42 years old, were taken into custody. The woman is facing charges of sale and delivery of methamphetamine and child neglect, and the man is charged with sale and delivery of crack cocaine.
