The New Brunswick RCMP arrested four individuals and seized several types of drugs, prohibited weapons and money as part of an ongoing drug-trafficking investigation in Moncton, N.B.
On October 7, 2021, police arrested a 46-year-old woman outside a business on Filles de Jesus Avenue as a part of the ongoing investigation. Subsequent to the arrest, police executed a search warrant at a home on Elmwood Drive in connection with the investigation. During the search, police seized what are believed to be methamphetamine pills, ecstasy pills, hydromorphone pills, oxycodone pills, as well as psilocybin mushrooms, prescription pills, contraband cigarettes and cannabis. Police also seized prohibited weapons, drug paraphernalia and money.
The 46-year-old woman was later released and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on January 20, 2022. Three other individuals were arrested at the scene and later released.
