A 36-year-old woman is facing several drug charges after a drug bust at a home in the Elm West area early Friday morning.

The Feb. 7 raid at the Ethelbert Street home was carried out by the Greater Sudbury Police Service Drug Enforcement Unit and the Ontario Provincial Police OCEB (Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau).

Police used a CDSA (Controlled Drugs and Substances Act) Search Warrant to enter the home.

Officers seized hydromorphone tablets, methamphetamines and suboxone tablets worth a total of $1,180, along with $5,500 in cash.

The 36-year-old woman has been charged with three counts of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and one count of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime.

Officers will also be applying for a warrant for a 35-year old man in connection to the investigation.
