Couple Accused Of Drug Activity With Kids Home

Sheriff's Dept. Calls Drug Busts One Of Its Biggest

A couple are accused of trying to deal drugs out of their Atlantic home with their children there.

The Cass County Sheriff's Department called the drug bust one of its biggest, seizing drugs and paraphernalia from all over the house.

The drug bust at the home has taken neighbors aback.

"Holy crap. It's like -- that's way too close to home for me. Scary," Ashley Anderson said.

"We knew nothing of it. It was just another couple with children in the neighborhood," Jim Simpson said.

Cortney McIntire, 27, and her boyfriend, Justin Taylor, 28, lived at the home for less than a year with their 5-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter.

"They were loners. They kept to themselves," Simpson said.

Now, the couple are jailed in Cass County, booked on charges of possession with intent to deliver cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana; prohibited acts; sponsoring a gathering and two counts of child endangerment.

Sheriff Darby McLaren said that the county worked a tip that the couple were dealing drugs out of their home. So, authorities set up surveillance.

"We were able to view some hand-to-hand transactions between them and people coming to the house for drugs. And we also witnessed them ingesting drugs in the back porch area," McLaren said.

The sheriff said it was enough evidence to issue a search warrant last Sunday.

Inside, authorities said they found the couple, two neighbors, the children and a lot of drug paraphernalia.

"There wasn't a large quantity. It was certainly a couple grams," McLaren said.

Both McIntire and Taylor are being held each on $250,000 bail.

They're due in court next week. The couple's two children were taken into state custody and are now in an aunt's care.
