Moncton, New Brunswick – The Codiac Regional RCMP have arrested a 61-year-old man from Moncton, and seized drugs and a weapon as part of an ongoing investigation in the community.
In April 2023, the Codiac Regional RCMP’s Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) and the New Brunswick Integrated Enforcement Unit (IEU) began an investigation into the trafficking of illegal drugs in the Moncton area.
On May 2, 2023, at approximately 4 p.m., members of the Codiac Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) and the NB IEU executed a search warrant at a residence on Mill Road in Moncton. During the search, police seized quantities of what are believed to be cocaine and hydromorphone. Police also seized drug trafficking paraphernalia, illegal tobacco, ammunition, a 3D printed handgun and money.
A 61-year-old man from Moncton was arrested at the scene. He was later released, and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on August 17, 2023.
This investigation was the result of a joint effort between the Codiac Regional RCMP’s Crime Reduction Unit and the New Brunswick Integrated Enforcement Unit (IEU). The New Brunswick IEU is made up of members from the New Brunswick RCMP, as well as municipal police and Justice and Public Safety officers in the province. These efforts aim to improve the coordinated response to the growing concerns of drugs, firearms, and organized crime within New Brunswick.
The public plays an important role in helping to reduce, prevent and solve crime, including the trafficking of illegal drugs. Anyone with information about, or who suspects, illegal drug activity in their neighbourhood is asked to contact their local police. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by downloading the secure P3 Mobile App, or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
