Drug agents arrested two on charges of trafficking cocaine following a raid on a Decatur home Tuesday night.

The search by police and Morgan County narcotics agents at 1926 Manchester Drive S.W. led to the discovery of more than 58 grams of crack cocaine, more than twice the amount the law says constitutes drug trafficking, said Sheriff Greg Bartlett.

Two residents of that address, Derotus Qauintezs Nash, 23, and Tinisha Octavia Allen, 21, face charges of possessing ecstasy, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, in addition to drug trafficking charges.

Along with the stash of crack cocaine, agents found powder cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana
and Hydrocodone pills, scales, a 12-gauge shotgun, two handguns, and $8,000 cash, Bartlett said.

Morgan County Jail released Nash and Allen on Wednesday, each on $16,250 bond.

The Decatur police Organized Crime and Anti-Crime units
assisted the Morgan County Drug Task Force in the operation
