A judge imposed $20,000 bonds Wednesday against two people arrested during a Clark County Sheriff’s Office drug raid.
Isiaah Channels, 20, and Mahdi Channels, 22, were charged in Clark County Municipal Court on charges of trafficking in drugs, endangering children and two counts of receiving stolen property.
Also in the case, Citalli Rosales, 20, was charged with endangering children. She pleaded not guilty and her bond was set at $10,000.
All three pleaded not guilty to the charges and a next court date was not set in the case.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit launched their inquiry into an apartment complex on East High Street near South Belmont Avenue in Springfield about two months ago. Clark County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Christopher Clarke said Undercover narcotics officers witnessed activity at the address and deputies were able to gather enough evidence to obtain a search warrant.
During the Tuesday morning search warrant execution, deputies found stolen guns and drugs.
“During the search, a 9mm handgun with an extended magazine, a loaded SKS 7.62 rifle along with a large amount of suspected crack cocaine and pills were in the apartment,” an affidavit filed with the charges said.
The sheriff’s office also found a 2-year-old child in the home, Clark County Sheriff Deb Burchett said.
“There were some weapons just sitting around the area,” the sheriff said. “It’s very dangerous with that child running around. A 2-year-old can pick them up at any time and that’s why children services were called to the scene.”
The sheriff said the arrests should serve as a warning to other drug dealers in the Clark County that the office is committed to enforcing the law and bringing criminals to justice.
