Amherst man faces drug trafficking charges

A 57-year-old Amherst man is facing a pair of drug trafficking charges after the search of a home in the town late last week.

The Cumberland County Integrated Street Crime Unit, with help from the Amherst Police Department, executed a search warrant Friday at a home on Croft Street.

Police say officers seized methamphetamine tablets, marijuana, cash, and drug trafficking-related items.

The man is due in court on April 23rd to face possession of both methamphetamine and marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
