A man and a woman are facing narcotics charges after a police operation in Hartford on Wednesday.

In September of 2017, police say a search warrant for narcotics was initiated at a residence on Russ Street, which led to the arrest of Joshua Sanchez. 

Since then, authorities say they have received a number of complaints for the same address in regards to the sale of illegal narcotics. 

In July of 2018, officials say an investigation began, which confirmed the complaints and a search warrant was obtained.

According to police, a search warrant operation was conducted on Wednesday. They say 554 bags of heroin and $1271 were seized.

As a result, authorities say 28-year-old Joshua Sanchez and 56-year-old Maria Failoo, both of Hartford, were arrested. They say both were charged with possession of narcotics and possession with intent to sell narcotics.
