Police Seize Drugs, Weapons and Stolen Vehicles in Kedgwick Bust
Five people were arrested and two have been charged with drug trafficking after RCMP seized various drugs including over 13,000 pills, cocaine, hashish and hallucinogenic mushroom in Kedgwick, New Brunswick.
Members of the RCMP’s federal crime section in Saint-Leonard, with assistance from the Saint-Quentin RCMP executed a search warrant Wednesday at a residence in the Kedgwick area.
Police seized significant quantities of drugs, some of which are being analyzed to determine exactly what they are, according to Constable Hans Ouellette.
Also seized were two firearms, a conductive energy weapon, ammunition, illegal game meat, and a travel trailer, a side-by-side utility vehicle, all-terrain vehicle, and motorcycle that are believed to have been stolen.
Five people were arrested during the execution of the warrant. Three of them have been released pending further investigation, and two men appeared in Campbellton Provincial Court on Thursday.
Forty-two-year-old Danny Borris and 60-year-old Jean Yves Borris, both from Kedgwick, have each been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in methamphetamine and cocaine.
Borris is also charged with possession of OxyContin. Both men were remanded into custody and will return to court on October 27.
RCMP say the investigation is ongoing.
Note: Earlier information from police had estimated 20,000 pills were confiscated, but that has been revised to 13,000.
