They were arrested on July 20 at 6919 Spring Arbor Dr. in Deerfield Twp. after a call about a woman being dragged into the residence, according to County Prosecutor David Fornshell.

When sheriff’s deputies arrived, drugs were in “plain view,” according to Fornshell. The alleged victim apparently was no longer there or had regained consciousness, Fornshell added.

After a search warrant was obtained, “significant amounts of drugs, cash, drug ledgers, scales, safes, guns were located,” Fornshell said in a text message.
