A 19-year-old Carleton County man was arrested and has been charged following a drug seizure in Clearview, New Brunswick.


Members of the Woodstock and Perth-Andover RCMP executed a search warrant Monday at a residence on Route 130. Constable Emily Rafuse said two men and a woman were arrested at the scene. One of the men and the woman were released without charges.

During the search, police seized a quantity of a substance believed to be cocaine, along with various drug paraphernalia, Rafuse said.

Nineteen-year-old Mackenzie O'Keefe of Clearview was charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in Woodstock Provincial Court for a bail hearing on Tuesday.

RCMP say the investigation continues.
