A couple living in a small town on Newfoundland's Northern Peninsula faces drug and firearms charges following a police raid on Tuesday. 

The RCMP said a sawed-off shotgun, other firearms and ammunition were seized in the raid at a house in Main Brook, a community of just 260. 

Police arrested a man and a woman, who are also facing drug trafficking charges. 

RCMP from the nearby detachment in Roddickton also seized marijuana and "a quantity of cash seized that is believed to be linked to the drug operation," as well as items that police believe are linked to the drug trade. 

In a statement, police did not specify how much marijuana and cash were taken. 

Police used a search warrant to enter the house, and noted that the raid was part of an ongoing investigation.
