Castlegar RCMP members executed a search warrant on Saturday, March 2, 2013, in the 300 Block of 3rd Street in Castlegar, B.C., arresting a 40-year-old Castlegar woman and 36-year-old Castlegar man.

An RCMP press release said both individuals are known to police.

The release stated members had been investigating drug activity at the home over the past six months.

The search of the residence revealed marihuana, cocaine and unidentified prescription pills (not prescribed to the woman arrested). Currency and drug paraphernalia were also seized.

The male was later released without charges, but charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a controlled substance have been recommended by police against the woman.

The female was released on various conditions after a March 3 bail hearing. Conditions included were that she not possess weapons, cell phones or digital devices, any drugs except as prescribed by a doctor and abide by a  curfew at her residence between 11 p.m. –  7 a.m..

The woman’s first court appearance is scheduled for April 10, 2013 in Castlegar.
