On October 19, 2016, members of the federal section in Saint-Leonard, with the assistance of police officers from the Saint-Quentin detachment of the Northeast District RCMP, executed a search warrant at a residence in the Kedgwick area.

During the search, police seized significant quantities of various drugs, including more than 20,000 pills, and substances believed to be cocaine, hashish and hallucinogenic mushrooms. Some of the drugs are being analyzed to determine exactly what they are.

Also seized were two firearms; a conductive energy weapon; ammunition; illegal game meat; and a travel trailer, side by side utility vehicle, all-terrain vehicle, and motorcycle that are believed to have been stolen.

In all, 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 October 20.

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. Jean Yves Borris is also charged with possession of OxyContin. Both men were remanded into custody and will return to court on October 27.

The investigation is ongoing.
