CENTER, TX (KTRE) - Complaints from neighbors have landed a Center couple behind bars charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Abandon/Endangering a Child, and Possession of Marijuana. 

The Center Police Department's Narcotics Enforcement Division had gone to the apartment in the 800 block of Cotton Ford Road to execute a narcotics search warrant.  They arrested 30 year old Anthony Deshaun Harper and 21 year old Brittney Nicole Johnson.

Investigators say the arrests were a result of an undercover operation in response to complaints received of alleged narcotics trafficking at the residence.  Police said the investigation is continuing and they expect more arrests.

"This investigation is not concluded.  The Center Police Department would like to encourage you to continue call the Narcotics Office with concerns and tips.  T.N.T. would like to remind the drug dealers of Center, "you're next," Center Police Narcotics Detective Ricky King, said in a news release.
