Nassau County police accused a Baldwin man and an Albertson woman Friday afternoon of selling "a substance believed to be heroin and fentanyl" to a resident in Nassau County, police said.
Narcotics and vice squad detectives were investigating several overdoses and complaints in the community, leading to the arrest of Jesse Sullivan, 25, and Samantha Carroll at Sullivan's home, police said.
Sullivan and Carroll were charged with multiple counts of criminal possession and sales of a controlled substance.
Both were arraigned Saturday in First District Court in Hempstead. Their attorneys could not be reached Saturday.
