Two Flushing residents were arrested last week after police executed a search warrant at a local housing development and seized drugs and firearms.

Upon executing a search warrant at an apartment within 133-50 Roosevelt Ave. at 6:10 a.m. on June 9, police discovered two suspects in possession of two loaded firearms and large quantities of crack cocaine and marijuana, an NYPD spokesperson said.

Troy Bennett, 33, and Debra Jackson, 48, were arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of marijuana, according to authorities.

In 2003, Bennett, then 19, was arrested after allegedly selling crack cocaine to undercover police officers conducting an anti-drug enforcement initiative, according to a press release from the Queens District Attorney’s office.

Deputy Inspector Judith Harrison, commanding officer of the 109th Precinct, took to Twitter to thank the officers involved in the investigation and arrests for their work.

“Many thanks to the Queens Narcotics team for their outstanding work in the #109pct #onelessgun #twolessguns,” Harrison wrote.
