Chatham-Kent police seized air-soft guns and several large knives after executing a search warrant at a Thamesville home.
Officers searched the residence on Wednesday.
One of the seized items included a butterfly knife, which is a prohibited weapon. The other knives, which are not prohibited or restricted were seized for public safety.
Several firearms were also seized for examination. A firearms examiner inspected them and identified them as air-soft guns, therefore no charges were laid in relation to the replica firearms.
Officers also seized marijuana and hydromorphone.
John McClellan, 26, of Jane Street in Thamesville was arrested and charged with unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Susan Aykroyd-McLellan, 56, of Jane Street in Thamesville was arrested and charged with possession of prohibited weapon, unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Both were released with conditions pending a future court date of Feb. 4.
