A Kittanning woman and a Mc-Kees Rocks man were arrested by the Armstrong County Narcotics Enforcement Team and charged with selling heroin to a police informant in a Manor Township home.

Nichole Claypoole, 23, and Rashaan Ahmend Campbell, 33, are being held in the Armstrong County Jail on felony and misdemeanor drug charges, according to District Attorney Scott Andreassi.

Bail was set by District Judge Gary DeComo at $50,000 each.

They are charged with selling 50 stamp bags of heroin to a police informant at a house on Garrets Run Road. Claypoole and Campbell each face two felony counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or deliver, and using a cellphone during the drug transaction. They are also charged with possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. In addition, Campbell faces a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Andreassi said he expects the pair to be charged with endangering the welfare of two young children who were in the house at the time of the alleged drug sale.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Judge DeComo's court.
