Special Operations Unit agents arrested two people and seized more than $4,000 worth of methamphetamine after raiding a suspected Franciscan Woods Drive drug house Friday afternoon, according to court testimony.

Bradford Harden, 44, and Keisha Campbell, 40, faced felony possession of meth and possession of drug related objects charges during a Monday morning Recorder's Court hearing.

Harden faced five additional charges, including possession of heroin, trafficking meth and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Police apprehended Harden and Campbell inside the home after monitoring the 8500 block home for more than six hours. A search revealed contraband in almost every room, including numerous meth-residue covered plastic baggies and glass smoking devices, an agent told the court.

In total, agents seized 45 grams of meth, one gram of heroin, three grams of marijuana and 20 Hydrocodone pills. A .22 Magnum pistol was also located. The drugs were collectively valued at more than $5,000.

The majority of the contraband was found in Harden's room, an agent told the court. However, because no suspects claimed the drugs during the raid, agents charged Campbell with contraband found in the living room. That contraband includes 3.3 grams of meth, several smoking devices stuffed under reclining chairs and plastic baggies.

Campbell later told police she was aware people smoked meth at the Franciscan Woods Drive, but denied any connection to the suspected drug activity.

During Monday's hearing, Harden took responsibility for all drugs and weapons seized. Campbell's charges were dropped.

Judge Michael Cielinski set no bond on Harden's meth trafficking charge. A bond of $31,500 was set for the remaining charges.
