BELTON — A man and woman were indicted on felony charges, after a search of their home turned up a cache of drugs and one gun.

A Bell County grand jury returned an indictment Wednesday on Tanika Lashawnda Martin, 30, and Lavido Montrey Singletary, 28, on a charge of possession with intent to deliver cocaine, 4 grams or more.

The grand jury also indicted Singletary, a repeat drug offender, on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

According to an arrest affidavit, the two were arrested after agents with the Bell County Organized Crime Unit searched a residence in the 4500 block of July Drive in Killeen, on a suspicion that Singletary was selling drugs.

A search of the residence netted about 73 grams of cocaine, 79 grams of marijuana, 5 grams of methamphetamine, 188 grams of promethazine codine and a 0.380 semi- automatic handgun, the affidavit stated.

Police also recovered three digital scales and a marijuana grinder.

Both Singletary and Martin were arrested.
