Hawkesbury OPP executed a search warrant today (April 9) on a house on Main Street West in Hawkesbury. The raid ended with two people facing drugs and weapons charges.

Police seized an unspecified amount of methamphetamine, Percocet tablets, and a quantity of suspected cocaine, along with a load rifle with an ammunition magazine, an air-soft rifle, and more than $2000 in Canadian currency.

The two accused have been released on their own recognizance and are schedule for the August 8 provincial court session in L’Orignal.
