    Police arrested a man and a woman Friday after the pair sold crack cocaine in front of their children, including a 5-week-old infant.

    Officers say they charged Henry P. Jones Jr. and Tenielle Fenderson of Walnut Street in Camden with drug-related charges and child endangerment after a month-long investigation.

    Their 5-week-old infant was in the back seat of their car when the two suspects sold crack cocaine to an undercover detective, according to reports.

    Authorities say in a seperate incident Fenderson had her 9-year-old child in the vehicle when completing another drug sale to an undercover officer.

    Those were just two of the multiple purchases made by police during the investigation.

    Each suspect is being held on $10,000 cash bail. When they were taken into custody, police seized cocaine, more than $500 in cash and their vehicle.

    Officials say Fenderson was in training to be a 911 dispatcher for the City of Camden and was working for the city as a school crossing guard at the time of the arrest.
