A stolen vehicle investigation led to so much more for Chatham-Kent police recently, resulting in two people facing a slew of drug- and firearm-related charges.

The Intelligence Unit, with support from the Critical Incident Response Team and the Canine Unit, raided a home on Vanier Drive Tuesday.

As they searched the residence, officers found guns and drugs. Police say they recovered two firearms and a Taser, as well as a quantity of suspected ecstasy, fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, oxycodone, hydromorphone and clonazepam.

A 35-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, both of Chatham-Kent, are charged with seven counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, two counts of careless storage of a firearm, two counts of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, two counts of unauthorized possession of a prohibited firearm, possession of stolen property over $5,000, carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized possession of a weapon, two counts of possession of a prohibited firearm in a motor vehicle, and possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition.

The man is also facing three counts of possessing a firearm contrary to a prohibition order and failing to comply with a probation order, while the woman is also charged with two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.

Both had bail hearings Wednesday and both were remanded into custody.
