A 26-year-old man was charged with drug-related offences and possessing a prohibited weapon, while a 24-year-old woman was charged with driving-related offences.
A 25-year-old man was charged with drug-related offences and possessing an unregistered handgun.
All three have been bailed and will appear in court in February.
