The Ventura County Grand Jury has indicted five Oxnard residents suspected of selling and distributing rock cocaine, a spokeswoman from the district attorney's office said Thursday.
The indictments, announced at an arraignment Wednesday, named Robert Carter Sr., 59; Robert Earl Carter, 33; Mary Ann Carter, 32; Sheila Denise Boyd, 24, and Simmie Percell Holland, 27, said Deputy District Atty. Nancy Ayers.
All were charged with conspiracy to sell and distribute rock cocaine at a house at 2031 W. Birch St., Ayers said.
The narcotics investigation began when neighbors complained of blatant drug dealing outside the house. Witnesses said the dealing had been going on for years and that some buyers purchased drugs through a bathroom window at the rear of the building, Ayers said.
