After a weeks-long investigation by the Statesville Police Department and the Iredell County Sheriff's Office, 28-year-old Brandon Lamar Adams and his girlfriend, 26-year-old Kayla Latrice Daye were arrested after a search warrant executed at Adams' home turned up more than 170 grams of heroin.

The couple was taken to the Iredell County Detention Center and placed under a $1.5 million bond each.
