CORNWALL – Two people have been arrested after police searched a Cornwall home Wednesday morning (Oct. 14) and seized $29,000 worth of drugs and money.

Officers moved in on the Cumberland Street home and confiscated purple fentanyl, crystal meth and methamphetamine, along with a shotgun, a pellet gun and cash.

Police say the combined street value of the drugs and money is $29,000.

Two Cornwall men, ages 45 and 37, are facing drug and weapons related charges.
