On January 17, 2020, members of the Woodstock RCMP, the West District RCMP’s Crime Reduction Unit and the RCMP’s Police Dog Services, executed two search warrants on a residence and property on Speerville Road in Speerville. The warrants were executed as part of an ongoing investigation that began in November, 2019.

Thirty-nine-year-old Walter (Ricky) Michaud of Speerville appeared in Woodstock Provincial Court on January 20, and was charged with two counts of possession of stolen property, unauthorized possession of a firearm, failure to comply with an undertaking, and breach of probation. He is scheduled to return to court on January 23.

Two other adults, a 36-year-old man from the Woodstock First Nation and a 31-year-old woman from West Florenceville were also arrested. They were released from custody and are scheduled to appear in court at a later date.

During the search, police seized quantities of what is believed to be crystal methamphetamine, methamphetamine pills, drug paraphernalia, a firearm and stolen property including a 2009 Ford Escape and a U-Haul car trailer.

The investigation is still ongoing.
