The RNC arrested three people Friday afternoon following a drug bust at a home on Mayor Avenue in St. John's.

The drug investigation unit, with a search warrant, converged on the home just past 5 p.m. They found an undisclosed quantity of cocaine and drug paraphernalia, more than $10,000 in cash and several prohibited weapons of unknown type.

A 23-year-old woman has been charged with possession of a prohibited drug. She was released to appear in court at a later date.

The other two accused, both men, one 24 and the other 26, have been charged with possession of a prohibited drug for the purpose of trafficking. 

Pending its investigation, police may also lay weapons related charges.

The men were held overnight to appear in court Saturday morning.
