Two arrested after Brighton drug bust

A man and woman, in their 20s, from Brighton have been charged after OPP executed a search warrant on a home in the town yesterday.

The Drug Enforcement Unit, Emergency Response team and Northumberland OPP officers found 90 marijuana plants, digital scales and marijuana inside the home.

If the plants were allowed to mature, police say the street value would be about $90,000.

Twenty-three year-old Jennifer Hough and 26 year-old Aaron Knapman are facing drug related charges.

Knapman was held for a bail hearing today while Hough was released with a court date in early July.
