RICHMOND — Two Shannock residents are facing felony drug possession charges after officers responding to a 9-1-1 domestic call said they found more than 10 pounds of "dried usable marijuana" at the household.

Amy Boisvert, 34, and Brett A. Bentley, 34, of 198 Shannock Village Road were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver (1-5 kilograms).

Boisvert was also charged with domestic simple assault after an investigation determined that she was "the primary agressor" in the altercation that occurred on March 29, according to a press release from Richmond Police Chief Elwood M. Johnson Jr.

The police said that the marijuana was packaged in glass canning jars and plastic bags in the home.

Both suspects were ordered held without bail over the weekend at the Adult Correctional Institutions, and were arraigned April 1 in 4th Division District Court in Wakefield, the police said. Both were released on $10,000 personal recognizance, and Boisvert was also given a no-contact order.
