PORT HAWKESBURY: Two people were arrested and charged with drug offences following a police search of a residence in the town.

On April 3, Inverness District RCMP’s Street Crime Enforcement Unit seized oxycodone, hydromorphone, dextroamphetamine, and clonzaepam, resulting in the arrest of a 47-year-old woman and a 60-year-old man, who are both from Port Hawkesbury.

Both individuals were released from custody later in the day. They are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and are scheduled to appear in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court in June.

The investigation is ongoing.
