Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

SYD­NEY — Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice have charged two men with pre­scrip­tion drug-re­lated of­fences fol­low­ing a raid Fri­day. Eric Dwight Rud­der­ham, 53, of Florence, has been charged with pos­ses­sion for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing in buprenor­phine. He was re­manded to the Cape Bre­ton Cor­rec­tional Cen­tre pend­ing his next court ap­pear­ance. Buprenor­phine is pri­mar­ily used in the treat­ment of heroin and oxy­codone ad­dic­tion. A sec­ond man, who was not named by po­lice, was ar­rested in­side the home in Florence. He was charged with pos­ses­sion of hy­dro­mor­phone and buprenor­phine. The man was re­leased from po­lice cus­tody and will ap­pear in pro­vin­cial court at a later date. The in­for­ma­tion on the charges laid against the man hadn’t been for­mally filed in court. The ar­rests were made as part of a joint forces op­er­a­tion be­tween the re­gional po­lice and RCMP.
