Inside the bedroom, police found a concrete block with a black plastic bag containing suspected cannabis hidden inside. Lynch and Fitzgibbon were both detained. The case was adjourned until December fifth and Magistrate Frazer offered the two defendants bail in the sum of seven thousand dollars each plus two sureties.
