Authorities seized eight pounds of methamphetamine and more than $60,000 during a drug investigation started by a traffic stop, the Pulaski County sheriff's office said.
Lt. Carl Minden said in a statement that Steve Neugent and Brittany Gay were arrested Sunday after a traffic stop in Sherwood led to the discovery of suspected marijuana in their vehicle.
That led to an undercover drug purchase during which Aguilar Ruben was arrested and found to have crystal methamphetamine and marijuana on his person, according to a police report.
Authorities then obtained a search warrant for 7012 Dahlia Drive, where Jessica Suarez, Marcos Aguirre, Pablo Chavez and Maria Garcia were all arrested Monday.
Police say a search of that residence revealed the eight pounds of methamphetamine. Two children were living in the home with their parents with some of the drugs within their reach, police said.
All seven suspects were booked into the Pulaski County jail.
