PERKINS TWP.

Two Memphis Avenue residents each face up to 13 years in prison if convicted on drug trafficking charges, according to a Perkins police report released Tuesday.

Police arrested Marvin D. Cunningham, 46, and Taneicia D. Alexander, 25, both of the 5000 block Memphis Ave., last week on felony counts of possession of drugs and trafficking in drugs.

As part of the raid police confiscated four bags containing white powder believed to be cocaine, one bag of marijuana and more than $2,500 in cash, according to the police report.

Perkins police worked in conjunction with two agents from the Toledo Drug Enforcement Administration and Sandusky police. A digital scale and a metal spoon with white residue were also among the confiscated goods, the report said.

"It may not have been the area's largest (drug bust)," said acting police chief Robb Parthemore. "But it was significant."

The exact weight of the drugs has yet to be determined pending lab test results, he said.

Cunningham has already posted his Erie County jail bond and awaits a plea hearing Aug. 1 in Sandusky Municipal Court.

Alexander's bond has been revoked. She pleaded not guilty to the charges Tuesday. A preliminary hearing is being scheduled in her case.
