Two people have been arrested and charged after police seized close to 50 grams of drugs at a residence in Swift Current.

On November 29, the Swift Current Saskatchewan Trafficking Response Team (STRT) executed a search warrant at a residence in Swift Current as part of a drug trafficking investigation.

Officers located and seized 42 grams of pharmaceutical-style tablets that investigators determined to contain fentanyl and cocaine, 4.6 grams of suspected fentanyl powder, 2.3 grams of suspected methamphetamine, a sum of cash, and other drug trafficking paraphernalia.

30-year-old Samantha Nastuk and 35-year-old Derek Ruest are charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, two counts of trafficking, and one count of possessing the proceeds of crime less than $5000.

Nastuk was also charged with one count, failing to comply with the release order.

Both are scheduled to appear in Swift Current Provincial Court on December 4.
