COTTONWOOD, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a couple is facing multiple drug and child abuse charges after large amounts of heroin and meth were found in their Cottonwood home.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that 39-year-old Jairo Chavez-Rodriguez and 40-year-old Johanora Gonzalez were arrested last month as part of a drug task force investigation.

Deputies say Chavez-Rodriguez's Dec. 19 arrest led to a search warrant on his home.

Investigators found a pound of heroin and half a pound of meth. They also found scales, two firearms and pieces of foil with heroin residue.

Two 6-year-olds and a 9-year-old were present and are with the Department of Child Safety.

Chavez-Rodriguez is being held without bond.
