— Narcotics agents with the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office arrested a man and woman Thursday in a raid that also netted weapons, drugs and thousands of dollars in cash.

Ronald Kenneth Rigsby, 62, of 252 E. Jenkin St., and Wanda Lynn Harwood, 53, of 1913 Wordsworth Drive, were arrested after agents got a warrant to search Rigsby's Fayetteville house.

Rigsby and Harwood both face felony drug charges, including trafficking opium and maintaining a dwelling for the sale and distribution of drugs.

Agents said they found cocaine, marijuana, prescription drugs and other controlled substances in Rigsby's house. Agents also seized money, five long guns, four handguns and laptop computers.

Rigsby and Harwood were being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center late Thursday, and their bond had not yet determined. They were scheduled to make their first court appearances Friday afternoon.
