BRADENTON -- Two people were arrested on drug charges in Bradenton on Tuesday afternoon after officers saw them walking around a house, according to Bradenton police.

About 4:10 p.m., officers with the Casual Clothes Unit saw a vehicle heading north in the 1100 block of Seventh Street Court West park in a driveway, according to a report. Two people got out and started walking around the house.
