In a news release, the Fredericton Police Force reported it seized 5.5 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, 0.5 kilograms of cocaine, multiple restricted firearms and a significant sum of cash.

    Two men arrested following seizure of variety of drugs, firearms and cash in N.B.

Beyond that, CBC reports that the seizure also included 6.3 kilograms of cannabis and quantities of hydromorphone, oxycodone, morphine, acid, psilocybin, methylphenidate and lorazepam.

The search was conducted on 4/20, as authorities executed four Controlled Drug and Substances Act (CDSA) warrants on an apartment in Fredericton, as well as two storage units and a vehicle.

The man and woman are now facing 45 criminal charges and 18 CDSA charges.

In addition to the controlled substances, police also seized a number of weapons, including five handguns, two rifles, a shotgun, ammunition, a Taser and brass knuckles. The duo is due in court next week.

In its statement, the police force noted it is engaged with other law enforcement agencies and partners in the Atlantic Methamphetamine Strategy, an effort meant to curb the importation, production, sale and distribution of methamphetamine and its precursors in the region.

Last month, eight people were charged following a months-long drug probe into New Brunswick and Nova Scotia that began in October 2021.

As part of the investigation, police executed search warrants and enforcement actions in Moncton and Sackville, NB, leading to arrests and the seizure of cocaine, methamphetamine, psilocybin, prescription drugs, items that could be used to produce cocaine, a handgun with a silencer, a money counter, cash, red and blue “police-style” lights and siren and a radio with access to police communications and cellular phones.

“This investigation is an example of what is achieved when police services and enforcement partners work seamlessly together across jurisdictional boundaries to dismantle crime groups who pose a risk to public safety,” Supt. Paul MacDougall, district policing officer for the Northeast Nova District of the RCMP, said in a statement.
