Prescription pills and cash were seized in a traffic stop on Highway 103 on Saturday.
After a traffic stop in which police arrested two people and seized cash and prescription pills, a Welshtown home has been searched and more drugs found.
The original bust resulted in about 60 - 3mg hydropmorphone capsules being seized.
That seizure came at approximately 3 p.m. as the Shelburne County Street Crime Enforcement Unit (SCEU) and the RCMP Queens Detachment conducted a vehicle stop in the westbound lanes of Highway 103 and made the arrests. In addition to the prescription pills, police seized a small quantity of marijuana and a quantity of cash.
In a news release, RCMP said a 21-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man remained in police custody on Sunday. They will be charged with Possession of Hydromorphone for the Purpose of Trafficking.
In a follow-up search of the man's residence, police found three marijuana plants, and more than three pounds of marijuana "shake."
Cpl. Nancy Mason, of the Shelburne County Street Crime Unit, also noted that bottles of isoproponal alcohol were located on the residence and as a result that charges of hashish oil production are pending against the man.
The investigation is continuing.
