A Melville couple is facing charges after police found drugs and cash in a local home.

RCMP said Jackan Davis, 21, and Kayla Gartner, 22, were arrested Monday after a raid uncovered four ounces of cocaine, some marijuana and $5,000 cash in a home on Scotia Street.

The two face charges of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

Two children who were in the home during the police raid have been placed with a family member.

RCMP say Davis is to appear in court Friday for a bail verification. He will stay in custody until then.
