JAMESTOWN – A 27-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman were arrested on cocaine charges and members of the Jamestown Police SWAT Team rescued a 2-year-old child who was being taken care of in a Sampson Street home that was raided late Friday morning.

Rocco A. Beardsley and Kylie M. Reeves were both jailed on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Reeves also was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after police determined she had been babysitting the 2-year-old child in the residence where drug activity was taking place.

The child was turned over to county child protection workers and the two drug suspects were held in the city jail pending further court proceedings.

Jamestown police reported seizing a quantity of both cocaine and oxycodone pills, a large sum of cash and drug paraphernalia. The raid was linked to a continuing investigation of crack cocaine sales and trafficking in the Jamestown area.

Officials said anyone with information about illegal sales of narcotics is urged to contact the Jamestown Police Anonymous Tip Line at 483-8477.
