A large amount of cash was discovered by the RCMP in a Camperville residence.

Manitoba RCMP uncovered a bumper crop when they raided a Camperville home this week.

Police seized a "significant amount of marijuana and a large sum of cash" which they believe was from previous drug sales. As well, six firearms were found inside the residence during Wednesday’s raid.

Peter Chartrand, 58, is now charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of crime, unsafe storage of firearms and trafficking in a controlled substance.

Sharon Chartrand, 53, is accused of possession for the purpose of trafficking and trafficking in a controlled substance.

Both suspects have been released on promises to appear in Dauphin court next month.

The investigation is ongoing.

"Those who traffic in illicit drugs destroy lives, homes and communities. The RCMP remains fully committed to enforcing laws against illicit drugs to their fullest extent. Anyone with information regarding drug trafficking is asked to call their local police agency or RCMP detachment," police said in a news release.
