A man arrested by Frederick police allegedly said he was selling crack cocaine to help pay for his wife's in vitro fertilization treatments.
 
The Frederick News-Post reports  27-year-old Jarvis Jerome Dorsey and his wife, 28-year-old Brandy Nicole Dorsey, were arrested Thursday when they were pulled over by undercover police officers. At the same time, detectives were serving a search warrant at the couple's apartment.
 
Lt. Joseph Hayer says police recovered marijuana, 30 bags of crack cocaine, ammunition and a firearm from the apartment.
