Brief: Tri-Net arrests dealers

by staff

Tri-Net narcotics agents arrested two suspected drug dealers in Carson City Thursday following an undercover operation and search of their residence in the 100 block of Cedar Street.

Corey Shawn Coca, 28, of Carson City, is suspected of seven charges of drug dealing, drug possession, paraphernalia possession and child endangerment. Coca works as a laborer.

Reports indicate that he possessed more than 14 grams of methamphetamine. He was being held on $100,000 bail.

Carson City resident Lisa Marie Compau, 29, a clerical worker, was arrested at the same location. She was charged with four counts of drug dealing, drug possession, paraphernalia possession and child endangerment. Her bail was set at $50,000.

Agent Dennis Slater said Coca sold drugs to a confidential informant several times. Compau is connected to one of those buys, he said.

While serving a search warrant at the couple’s residence, agents “found a hypodermic device hidden among some children’s toys,” Slater said.
