AMHERST, MA (WSHM) -

The Northwestern Anti-Crime Task Force has arrested two people after seizing various drug materials and more than $8,000 in cash as part of an ongoing investigation.

Christopher Hart, of 513 Main St., Amherst, and George Carrette, of Concord, were arrested after authorities served a search warrant Tuesday afternoon at Hart's apartment, according to a news release sent to CBS 3 from the Northwestern District Attorney's Office.

Authorities confiscated a long list of narcotics and drug paraphernalia. They found five mason jars of marijuana, 20 plastic bags containing marijuana, three pieces of marijuana wax, eight Adderall pills, a container of MDMA powder, several aluminum foil strips containing LSD, and four bags of psilocybin mushrooms, the news release indicated.

Police also found various drug paraphernalia as well, including two plastic bag heat sealers, three scales, two drug ledgers and packaging materials, according to the arrest report.

"The arrest of these suppliers of drugs to community members and our youth is a great example of how, working together, Amherst and UMass police and the Northwestern Anti-Crime Task Force are making a difference," Northwestern District Attorney David E. Sullivan said.

Hart and Carrette were charged with possession with intent to distribute a class D substance (marijuana), possession with intent to distribute a class C substance (marijuana wax), and possession with intent to distribute a class B substance (LSD), according to the arrest report.

Hart was additionally charged with possession with intent to distribute a class B substance (psilocybin mushrooms), and possession of a class B substance (Adderall), the report indicated.

Both men were arraigned in Eastern Hampshire District Court Wednesday and released on $1,500 bail. They are due back in court on June 27.
