Agents and deputies served a search warrant at 8:45 a.m. at Building 40, Apartment 102, on Wildwood Drive where they found Arthur L. Campbell II, 26, and his wife Amber L. Mosco Campbell, 23, in a bedroom and about 23 grams of suspected heroin, marijuana, digital scales, needles, cash and other items believed to be involved in the distribution of narcotics, the task force said.
Also found in the residence was a young child who was released to a member of the family, the task force said.
