The RCMP say a pair of 26-year-olds have each been charged with seven counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking after a drug bust in Amherst.

The man and woman, both from Amherst, also each face a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

They're due to appear in court on October 30th.
