A man and woman were arrested on drug charges after a bust at their Mansfield home on Monday.
Detectives with the METRICH Enforcement Unit said that they responded to a home in the 400 block of Holzworth Drive after receiving a tip about cocaine possession.
Detectives found Le Aunte Carter in the driveway when they arrived. They smelled marijuana and found a small amount of the drug. He was arrested and then while on the way to jail, attempted to destroy cocaine that was hidden on his body.
Carter's girlfriend, Nayyirah Young, was inside the home with two 5-year-old children.
Detectives said she refused to let them inside.
After negotiations, she opened the window to talk with officers, who observed the smell of marijuana.
The children were removed from the home, and a search warrant was served at the home.
Detectives found a large amount of crack cocaine, cash and drug paraphernalia.
Both Carter and Young are charged with drug possession and endangering children.
