Samoa police have arrested a couple found in possession of cannabis, methamphetamine and guns.

The man and his wife have been charged, with the woman given bail while the man is being kept in police custody until their first court appearance next Monday.

Police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner, Fauono Talalelei Tapu, says the number of couples involved in drug crimes is growing and police would not back off from searching for evidence to prosecute them.
