Two people facing drug charges in Trenton

Two people are facing a charge of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking following the search of a home in Trenton.

The RCMP say members of the Pictou County Integrated Street Crime Enforcement Unit, assisted by New Glasgow Regional Police, arrested a 40-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman on Thursday.

Police say cocaine and drug paraphernalia were seized from the home on Rose Avenue, and the two Trenton residents were arrested without incident.

The man appeared in Pictou Provincial Court on Thursday, and he was released on conditions with another court date scheduled for March 25th.

The woman was released from custody and is due in court on May 13th.
