Officers with the narcotics division of the Paris Police Department joined by Child Protective Service officials in a raid about 9 a.m. Thursday at a residence where drugs were reportedly being sold while numerous children were present and living.
Dwayne Lee Clark Jr., 27, and Kristi Victoria Simmons, 29, both of Paris, were taken into custody on charges of manufacturing or delivery of a controlled substance. Bond was set at $10,000.
Police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said digital scales, other paraphernalia, and numerous baggies of synthetic marijuana were found in the residence in the 900 block of East Houston St.
One other person was arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, and two others were taken into custody when they were found to have outstanding warrants.
Pending further investigation, Child Protective Services removed the eight children found inside the residence.
Garrett said police responded to 101 calls for service on Thursday, resulting in 12 arrests.
