A 37-year-old woman who was arrested was charged with five counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking controlled substances and one count of proceeds of crime. She will return to court on March 21 for election and plea.

A 45-year-old man who had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court was charged with possession of cocaine and breaching a court order. He will have a bail hearing on Monday.

A 36-year-old woman and two men ages 34 and 37 will be back in court on May 7.

A 33-year-old man was released without charges.
