Former “Days of our Lives” actor Dylan Patton had some visitors today — a bunch of L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies who raided his house and arrested him for selling cocaine.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops got wind that the 20-year-old was allegedly selling coke out of his Agoura Hills home, so they sent an undercover cop in a few days ago to make a purchase.  We’re told deputies then got a search warrant and raided the house this morning.

Patton is currently in jail.  Bail has been set at $30,000.

Patton made appearances on several shows throughout his career — including “Cold Case” and “That’s So Raven” — but he’s best known for the role of Will Horton on “Days of Our Lives,” starring in numerous episodes of the soap between 2009-2010.

William Roache, was charged on Wednesday with two counts of rape against an underage girl, British prosecutors said.

Roache, 81, who plays Ken Barlow in the popular soap opera “Coronation Street”, is the latest high-profile figure to be accused of sex crimes in Britain since the death of BBC television presenter Jimmy Savile in 2011.

Savile was one of the BBC’s biggest stars in the 1970s and 1980s, but after his death police discovered he had allegedly committed sex crimes on an unprecedented scale, triggering an investigation that has netted several other celebrities.

“We have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Roache to be charged with two offences of rape relating to a girl, aged 15, in 1967,” said prosecutor Nazir Afzal in a statement.
