Two people were arrested Friday night during a drug bust in west suburban Villa Park.

About 8 p.m., officers executed a search warrant at an apartment in the 1000 block of West North Avenue to search for illegal narcotics, according to a statement from Villa Park police.

Officers found heroin, baggies and scales in the residence, police said. They started investigating in May after receiving complaints about drug sales coming from the apartment.

King was ordered held at the DuPage County Jail on a $75,000 bond while Hicks was ordered held on a $100,000 bond, police said.
