The 19 year old woman and 29 year old man were arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm and taken to custody.
Following enquiries and forensic examination, the woman was released under investigation for this offence but was remanded in custody due to being wanted on warrant for a separate drugs offence in Scotland.
