Authorities have arrested two people in connection with a long narcotics distribution investigation in the Vidor area.

A 49-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman now are facing several charges following the execution of a narcotics search and arrest warrant on Thursday in the 500 block of Ruby Street in Vidor, an Orange County Sheriff’s Office press release said.

“This search warrant was obtained after a lengthy investigation into the distribution of heroin and methamphetamine in the Vidor, Texas area,” the release said.

Sheriff’s deputies were assisted by the Orange County SWAT team, Vidor Police Department, and Jasper County Precinct 6 Constable’s Office during the search of the residence where heroin, methamphetamine, ecstasy and methadone were found inside. Two operable rifles also were found in the home.

The man has been charged with five offenses, including various counts of possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

The woman also is facing five offenses, which also include various counts of possession of a controlled substance along with an unrelated warrant.

“The Orange County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, Honorable Judge Parkhurst (260th District Court), Vidor Police Department and Constable Sterling with the Jasper County Precinct 6 Constable’s Office with their assistance in this investigation,” The Sheriff’s Office said in the release.
