CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island police say a woman and her 24-year-old son have been busted for selling cocaine out of their apartment in Central Falls.

Fifty-nine-year-old Martha Figueroa and Fernando Rodriguez were arraigned Thursday in Providence District Court on charges including possession of cocaine with intent to deliver, conspiracy and possessing a firearm with no serial number.

Police say they executed a search warrant at Figueroa and Rodriguez’s home off Shawmut Avenue and found more than 150 grams of cocaine, nearly $2,000 in cash and the illegal firearm.

Figueroa and Rodriguez are detained without bail pending a court hearing on April 24. Their lawyers didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment Friday morning.
