A couple from Rosebud was arrested on Wednesday morning after police found drugs and weapons at their home in the 200 block of North Military Street.

Rosebud Police Chief Quincy Lee said the department executed a warrant at 8 a.m. after getting information, some from the community, about drugs being sold at that residence.

"You are going to have drugs everywhere. When you get intel for people, or if you get concerned citizens calling because there is more activity at their neighbor's house, we start looking into it and we start building from there," Lee said.

37-year-old Maurice Jackson and Kelly Hughes face charges of manufacturing and delivering controlled substances in penalty groups 1, 2, 3 and 4. They are also accused of delivering more than 1/4 of an ounce but less than 25 ounces of marijuana and having dangerous drugs.

Jackson, who is a felon, was charged with having a firearm at the time of his arrest.

Lee said officers found marijuana, ecstasy and different types of pills at the home. Police are awaiting lab results on other drugs found at the home. The department will also check to see whether there are any active prescriptions for the pills found at the home. If not, the couple will also face charges for that.

He said it's surprising to have found different types of drugs.

"We knew there were some there, but we didn't know as many different types as they were in the residence," Lee said.

When police arrived at the house, Lee said Maurice Jackson left the house through the window but were detained soon after. 

The Falls County Sheriff's Office, the Woodway Public Safety SWAT team, Robinson Police Department and Lott Police responded to assist with executing the search warrant.
