Two more Quinte West residents have been sentenced on charges related to a major drug bust in the city last April.

Jessica Abbot, 24, was sentenced to 10 days in jail for drug possession.  That is on top of 20 days of pre-sentence custody.  She will also be on probation for a year.

Michael Istead, 33, received 15 days in jail and  one year of probation, also for possession of illegal drugs.

They were rounded up as part of eight separate raids on residences in Quinte West by OPP units and those from Belleville and Tyendinaga Police.
Various drugs, weapons and drug making equipment were seized by police and a total of 16 people arrested.

A few remain before the courts.
