Also seized was drug trafficking paraphernalia and more than $3,600 in cash.

Donald Lubianesky, 53, and 43-year-old Shawna Mucci were charged in the bust. Both are charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of property obtained by crime.

The accused will appear in court on June 27.
