Man sentenced to more than two years in prison for drug and firearms offences

Moncton, New Brunswick – A 28-year-old man from Moncton, N.B., has been sentenced to two years and three months in prison, after pleading guilty to a number of charges in connection with a seizure of drugs and firearms last fall.

Logan Furlong pleaded guilty in Moncton Provincial Court on February 14, 2019, to possession for the purpose of trafficking in cocaine, possession for the purpose of trafficking in marijuana, production of a Schedule II substance, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and four counts of unsafe storage of a firearm.

The charges stemmed from the execution of a search warrant at a home on Galbraith Crescent on September 7, 2018, by the Codiac Regional RCMP. During the search, police seized six firearms, as well contraband cigarettes, a portable hash oil extractor and a quantity of cocaine and marijuana.
