A cardiac nurse and her boyfriend have been charged with selling cocaine out of their Montgomery home.

The arrests came after Aurora and Montgomery police executed a search warrant on the home nurse Leslie Farwell, 35, shares with Phillip Hill, the father of her children, on the 1300 block of Royal Drive.

At around 10:09 p.m. Aug. 6, officers from both Montgomery and Aurora set up a perimeter outside the home and found Hill, 35, sitting inside a mini-van in the driveway.

He was taken into custody and searched. He had $2,089 cash in his pocket, Aurora police said.

After taking Hill into custody, officers headed to the front door. No one inside the home answered, so police rammed their way in. Two children, ages 12 and 13, were found in the living room. Hill’s stepfather was found in the home’s basement.

According to recently received police reports, officers found a large rock of cocaine sitting out in the open on the kitchen counter. Near the rock was a scale, plastic bags, and other drug paraphernalia. Police said the rock weighed 53 grams.

Inside a kitchen cabinet, police also located a small bag of marijuana.

Police continued their search of the home, and found a jacket allegedly belonging to Farwell in an office. In the jacket’s pocket, officers found 84 grams of cocaine.

More than $3,900 in cash was also seized from the home, police said.

Police went to the hospital where Farwell works and took her into custody. She denied knowing anything about the drugs, police said.

Both she and Hill were charged with felony possession of cocaine, and felony manufacturing/delivering cocaine. Hill was also charged with possession of marijuana, police said.

The children were released to Farwell’s father, police said.
