Police arrested a Menlo Park couple allegedly selling crack cocaine out of their apartment near Menlo Park's Willows neighborhood Tuesday, Jan. 19.
Marcus Lovelace, 26, was booked into San Mateo County jail on a variety of charges, including possession of cocaine base for sale and possession of an assault rifle, according to police. Police also arrested Danielle Filice, 27.
Ms. Filice wasn't immediately charged because of medical problems that had to be addressed first, according to Sgt. Eric Cowans. Sgt. Cowans said she would eventually be booked on the same charges as Mr. Lovelace.
In a raid on the apartment in the 500 block of Willow Road Tuesday afternoon, police found several ounces of crack cocaine, along with the assault rifle, according to Sgt. Cowans.
Mr. Lovelace was in the apartment when police arrived, and police officers staked out the parking lot until Ms. Filice returned to the apartment, Sgt. Cowans said. Both were taken into custody "without incident."
Sgt. Cowans said the charges would most likely be transferred to federal court.
