A missing chihuahua was reunited with its owner after a drug bust in Pembroke, Ontario.

The incident started with a call for a report of unwanted people at a home in Pembroke, a city near Ottawa, on March 5, OPP said in a press release.

Police seized over 90 grams of suspected cocaine and a two-kilogram chihuahua that had been reported missing on Feb, 24, police said.

Officers also located items typically associated with drug trafficking, including cash, cell phones and digital scales, police said.

Police said the dog is back in the care of its owner and three people were charged.

Amanda Meilleur, 30, of no fixed address, and Corey Popkie, 36, of Pembroke, and Quinton Racine, 25, of Pembroke face drug charges.
