One person was charged with driving while suspended.

Another was allegedly caught with two grams of methamphetamine in his possession, while a third was arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle tobacco into the jail.

Police also found and seized a small quantity of cannabis from a vehicle, however no charges were laid, due to insufficient evidence of possession.
