CULPEPER, Va. (WUSA9) -- Two men and a woman were arrested after a drug bust at a home Friday night, police say.

The Culpeper Police Department was investigating alleged drug dealing at a home onWest Edmondson Street for about a year, police said.

According to police, the trio sold drugs by a marked police vehicle that was parked nearby.

Controlled buys in the past weeks allowed the police department to obtain a search warrant of the home,said Culpeper Police Lt. Tim Chilton.

Officers for the police department and sheriff's SWAT Team entered the home and found cocaine worth an estimated$6,500.

Paula Mary Shope, 44;Kenneth Darnell Jones, 28; Kameron Jermaine Davis, 29; were charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, police said.
