Two people from the Town of Boston are facing felony drug charges after police say they found them with 26 bags of marijuana.

Police arrested 57-year-old Elizabeth Weitzel and 58-year-old Paul Hoffman and charged them with criminal possession of marijuana.  

Erie County Sheriff's Deputies say they were checking on Weitzel, who was on probation, when they found the drugs.  Police say the marijuana weighed more than 20 ounces, and they also found drug paraphernalia, two shotguns and four rifles.

The two were taken to the Erie County Holding Center, and may face additional charges.
