A Stephens County deputy arrested two Duncan residents after searching their home on a warrant at about 3 p.m. Monday, June 3.

The two residents, James C. Rosser III and Brandi N. Starr, face charges related to possession of firearms after former felony convictions and trafficking in illegal drugs, both felonies. Trafficking in drugs is punishable by imprisonment for four years to life and a fine of $25,000-$200,000 after a former felony conviction.

Police cleared the residence after finding Rosser and Starr in a bathroom near the front entrance. Law enforcement also found the frame to a .22 rifle in a lockbox in a closet and a loaded .380 caliber handgun in a case behind a cabinet, according to an affidavit.

In addition to the firearms, in the bedroom, police also identified a white crystal-like piece on the mattress, digital scales with crystal-like residue and glass smoking devices, according to reports. Inside the cabinet which held the handgun, police found a large glass bottle, containing liquid that held several crystal-like pieces.

Deputy Jared Pollard found multiple digital scales that also had residue on them, and Deputy Matt Brown located a metal box which contained spoons with residue and a small black vial with brown residue inside.

Deputy Tim Vann found evidence of the two residing in the home, including mail addressed to their names and the address in question.

Both Rosser and Starr made an appearance before a magistrate, and each received a bond set for $250,000. They are to appear for a preliminary hearing at 9 a.m. July 17.
