Court records say deputies executed a search warrant around 9 a.m. Wednesday at 416 Scott St. as part of a drug investigation.
They broke into a side door at the home after those inside allegedly refused to comply, according to court records. Deputies noticed two children, ages 2 and 3, in the living room after the adults were escorted outside. The report alleges the children were near a digital scale with white residue, sandwich bags and razor blades.

Detectives also conducted surveillance on the home before the raid and allegedly saw several people entering and leaving, which deputies said was a sign of drug trafficking, according to court records.
