Chester area pair face drug charges. Police have charged a Chester area pair following search of a Marriotts Cove property that yielded the discovery of cocaine, firearms and cash. Lisa Ann Rhyno and William Harold Rhyno, both 47 and residents of Marriotts Cove, are each charged with one count of possession for the purposes of trafficking. The accused appeared in a Bridgewater court last month and are due in front of a judge again this month as their case proceeds through the legal system. Neither are in custody. Law enforcement, including a specialized integrated unit, searched a home June 14 and seized guns, money and drugs. Specific numbers of each were not released.

Youth arraigned on auto theft, other allegations. A 16 year old boy was arraigned June 28 in Bridgewater Provincial Court on charges of auto theft, taking a motor vehicle without consent and possessing stolen property. The boy, who cannot be named by law, is alleged to have avoided a police checkpoint June 23 on St. Phillips Street in Bridgewater while driving a stolen Toyota Matrix. "The vehicle was stolen shortly before the traffic stop from a residence in Bridgewater," police said. "The owner of the vehicle learned of the theft when contacted by police during the investigation." The allegations against the boy were set over to next month as the case proceeds through the legal system.
