The Portage County Drug Task Force made three arrests in an undercover drug bust Friday evening at the Silver Meadows apartment complex in Kent.

According to a press release by the task force, Rahsaan L. Carter, 32, was allegedly selling crack cocaine from a Silver Meadows apartment. When officials entered the apartment, Carter attempted to dispose of the substances by flushing them down the toilet. Carter was charged with trafficking in crack cocaine, a first-degree felony; tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony; possession of crack cocaine, a fourth-degree felony; and possession of criminal tools, a fifth-degree felony.

Nicole M. Clark, 30, and Kamisha S. Harris, 34, were also arrested at the apartment. Clark was charged with permitting drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony, and Harris was charged with complicity to trafficking in crack cocaine, a first-degree felony.

The crack cocaine sold by Carter had a street value of approximately $1,400, according to the press release. Officials also seized an undisclosed amount of cash, crack cocaine, marijuana and tools for packaging and selling narcotics.

All suspects are in the Portage County Jail pending arraignment.
