Members of the Placentia detachment of the RCMP arrested two area residents after executing a search warrant on a home in Freshwater, Placentia Bay. A quantity of marijuana and several firearms were seized.
A 24-year-old male and 24-year-old female were arrested for possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, as well as unsafe storage of the firearms.
Officers confirm the warrant was issued for drug-related concerns, but the firearms violation was determined after RCMP entered the home.
Charges are pending.
The identities of the accused cannot be released until formal charges are laid later this week.
Both accused are scheduled to appear in Placentia Provincial Court on March 26.
