New Brunswick Drug Bust
Global is reporting that "New Brunswick RCMP says five search warrants were executed at residences on Dominion Street, Donovan Terrace and Lester Avenue in Moncton, as well on Homestead Road in Steeves Mountain and Cedar Circle in Douglas. “During the searches, police seized quantities of drugs believed to be methamphetamine and cocaine, as well as several firearms and cash. Five men and three woman, all ranging in age from 17 to 49, were arrested during the searches, according to police. Four were released, but a 26-year-old man was held in custody. Jesse Todd Logue appeared in Moncton provincial court, where he was charged with two counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Later that same day, local witnesses spotted 12 Hells Angels riding in formation driving near the Moncton area on the Trans Canada Hwy.
"Police say investigation began in early 2019 and has involved members of the Codiac Regional RCMP, the New Brunswick RCMP’s West District, Southeast District, and specialized units, as well as the Fredericton Police Force, and the Woodstock Police Force." Even Woodstock and Fredericton have their ow police force. Why is it that the RCMP in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia make drug arrests but not BC?
