An Arkansas police department Thursday confiscated more than 5 pounds of meth, the largest amount seized in its street crimes unit's history.

Jonesboro police arrested Eric Kent, 37, and Maggi Joy Miller, 24, on multiple drug trafficking and firearm charges as well as endangering the welfare of a minor, according to a statement.

More than 5 pounds of illegal drugs were obtained along with a gun and more than $8,000 in cash, the statement reads.
