Three people were arrested and a cache of suspected cocaine, heroin and marijuana was seized along with more than $2,600 in currency during a Monday night drug raid at a Butler apartment, authorities said.

Behind bars at the Butler County Prison on $100,000 bail each are Danielle L. Napier, 35, of Butler; Floyd B. Carpenter, 35, of Pittsburgh; and Jeremy J. Rogers, 42, of Butler.

The Butler County Drug Task Force nabbed the trio after officers about 8 p.m. executed a search warrant at Napier's apartment on the 400 block of West New Castle Street.

The raid followed an investigation that began in early December, according to court documents, when a police informant reported narcotics sales at the home.

On Dec. 14, investigators said, the task force conducted a controlled drug buy using the informant to purchase crack there. Rogers was the alleged seller.

Another controlled buy was made in January, this time at another location, documents said, when Napier and Rogers sold crack to a police informant.

One more suspected crack buy was subsequently made involving Rogers and Napier near her apartment.

Within 48 hours of the last drug buy, District Judge Sue Haggerty issued the task force a search warrant for the apartment.

Officers said they found Napier, Rogers and Carpenter at the home.
