Officers seized methamphetamine, several clear baggies containing suspected cocaine residue, two digital scales with drug residue, surveillance equipment, multiple cell phones, drug paraphernalia, and a pellet gun.

The street value of the drugs recovered is around $300.

A 37-year-old woman and 36-year-old man are both charged with two counts of possession of a controled substance, while the man is also charged with two counts of failing to comply.

CK police say $20,000 worth of electronics and jewellery were stolen from a home on English Line back in November. The homeowner was able to provide police with a detailed list of items.

Officers were then able to track down the woman, who allegedly traded some of the stolen items for money at a pawn shop on two separate occasions.

The 30-year-old was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of possession of stolen property, and two counts of fraud.
