Last month, police said Melissa and Phillip Moran sold heroin on two separate occasions during an undercover investigation, according to a report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office.

Just after 9 a.m. Friday, police went to their home on Meridian Street with a search warrant. Inside, they found cash, multiple cellphones, scales, drug paraphernalia and what they believed to be heroin and methamphetamine, the report said.

Both were arrested and taken to the Johnson County jail, where they are each being held on $13,300 bond.
