NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Two Rhode Island residents are facing charges after police say a search of a North Providence apartment yielded what is believed to be cocaine and marijuana.

Twenty-three-year-old Adam Gallucci and 22-year-old Heather Marcotte were both held at their arraignment Friday on a variety of drug charges pending a bail hearing on Tuesday.

Marcotte was referred to the public defender’s office. A message was left with Gallucci’s attorney.

Police say they found 47 grams of suspected cocaine and about 9 pounds of suspected marijuana as well as more than $8,000 cash in an apartment they shared during a search on Wednesday.
