Naugatuck police arrested two adults and seized a large amount of drugs from a home where a 9-year-old child with autism also lives, police said.
Brandon and Joy Hornby are facing charges after Naugatuck police and an Orange K9 unit responded to 16 Windsor Place at 11:54 a.m. on Dec. 16 with a search and seizure warrant.
Police seized $3,670 in cash, 29 grams of cocaine, 160.5 grams of marijuana, 90 Xanax pills, 6.5 Oxycontin pills, four tabs of LSD, drug paraphernalia, a facsimile firearm and a machete from a home on Wednesday, Dec. 16 while searching the home on a warrant, police said. They also confiscated a safe used to store many of the items.
The search and seizure warrant stemmed from an ongoing investigation into drug sales at a private residence. Police had received information that a resident there had been selling prescription and illegal narcotics from and near the home.
Police served the warrant while the 9-year-old child who lives there was not there when officers arrived. A Department of Children and Families representative responded "to manage the situation regarding the juvenile."
Police arrested one of the adults on charges pertaining to suspected drug sales and the other for charges "related to the incident."
Both were scheduled to appear on Waterbury Superior Court Dec. 17. Joy Hornby was held on a $100,000 surety bond and Brandon Hornby was held on a $200,000 bond.
