A 24-year-old Sarnia woman was later released on a Promise to Appear. She faces possession charges for the purpose of trafficking for both marijuana and hydromorphone. The second individualo, a 34-year-old Sarnia man, faces charges of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking as well as charges related to a breach of probation and breach of recognizance.
Police say they seized about 96 grams of marijuana and 16 plants.
About 12 hours after the first search warrant, police executed another warrant on Richard Street. There, police found cocaine and methamphetamine and have charged a 52-year-old Sarnia man.
