Two Men Charged With Trafficking Meth and Cocaine in New Brunswick
Two men have been arrested in northwestern New Brunswick after police seized cocaine and thousands of methamphetamine pills. RCMP say shortly after 7:00 Sunday evening, officers stopped a car on Route 17 in Saint-Quentin.
A search of the vehicle turned up several packages containing more than 20,000 methamphetamine pills and more than 240 hits of cocaine. 32-year-old Steve Prescott of Joliette, Quebec was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Later that evening, RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in Saint-Quentin and seized more pills believed to be methamphetamine along with a quantity of cash. 33-year-old Aldo Cyr was arrested without incident.
The two men will remain in custody until their next court appearance on July 3 in Campbellton.
The 8-month investigation involved federal agents, RCMP officers in Saint-Quentin and Saint-Léonard as well as Grand Falls and Edmundston Police.
