Middletown police have arrested a pair of cousins accused of selling crack cocaine out of a Liberty Street apartment.

Officers said in addition, a narcotic K-9 found a second bag in Alston-Scott's pants and a small bag of marijuana in the car.
Police said in total they recovered more than 8 grams of crack cocaine.
Woodson and Alston-Scott were both charged with possession of crack cocaine with intent to sell and possession of crack cocaine within 1,500 feet of a school. Woodson was also charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia in a school zone.
Both are being held on bond and are expected to be arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on Friday.
