RICHMOND, R.I. (WPRI) — Two people are facing charges after Richmond police responded to a domestic disturbance call and discovered 10 pounds of marijuana inside a Shannock Village Road home.

On March 29, police were called to the home to investigate a domestic disturbance between Amy Boisvert and Brett Bently, who are both 34-years-old.

According to police, Boisvert called 911 to report the incident but ended the call before it could be transferred to police.

At the home, police seized 10 pounds of dried, usable marijuana packaged in glass mason jars and large plastic bags.

Boisvert and Bently were both charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. Boisvert was also charged with domestic simple assault. Police said Boisvert allegedly punched a someone inside the home.

On Monday, both suspects were arraigned in 4th District Court and released on $10,000 personal recognizance. Boisvert was presented with a no-contact order between her and the alleged victim.
