A man and a woman from Sheet Harbour are facing charges after drugs and a replica firearm were seized from a home in the community.

A release states officers searched a residence on Albert Howe Lane early Saturday, as part of an ongoing firearm investigation.

Police say a replica firearm, suspected methamphetamine, suspected opioids and cannabis products were seized from the home, and two of the four adults who were present were arrested for drug and weapons offences.

Investigators say one of the occupants suffered minor injuries and was treated and released by EHS.

The RCMP says 30-year old Stephen James Power is facing ten charges, and 32-year old Brittany Catherine Sack is facing nine charges, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and possession of cannabis for the purpose of selling.

Both were remanded into custody and were scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on Thursday morning.
