Authorities arrested a Ventura couple after an investigation found they were selling methamphetamine to local residents, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.

The investigation began in September when detectives were informed of the drug sales activity of Arnold Cortez, 51, of Ventura. Later information also found his girlfriend Sarah Granberry, 27, of Ventura, was involved in the narcotics sales. 

Cortez was later arrested on Oct. 10 by the Ventura Police Department for a separate narcotics sales investigation. On Thursday, detectives served a search warrant at their residence in the 200 block of Spring Street. Granberry was detained as she was leaving the residence, authorities said.

Granberry was arrested on suspicion of possessing narcotics for sale and felony conspiracy. She was booked into county jail and her bail was set at $500,000. Cortez remains in custody and additional charges are pending.
