39-year-old Sandra Roller-Lee and 47-year-old Patrick Lee were arrested and charged with Manufacture and Delivery of a Controlled Substance, as well as multiple misdemeanor crimes.

If convicted both subjects could face up to 99 years in prison and a 10,000 dollar fine. Officers seized the currency as well as the vehicle used to transport the narcotics.
