Two Londoners are facing drug charges after a police raid at an east-end home turned up nearly $40,000 worth of fentanyl and cocaine.

London police searched a home on Leeds Cross, north of Commissioners Road East last Friday. Officers seized 177 grams of fentanyl, 504 grams of a suspected cutting agent, 103 hydromorphone pills, 1.5 grams of cocaine, a fentanyl press, a small quantity of fentanyl transdermal patches, and cell phones.

The drugs are valued at $38,931.

More than $13,000 cash was also found in the home.

A 30-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, both of London, were charged with a combined 13 counts of possession of a Schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking.
