Four in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing a 40-year-old Car­bon­ear man, a 36year-old man and a 23-year-old woman both from Har­bour Grace, are fac­ing charges of pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime, traf­fick­ing and pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance.

The fourth ac­cused, a 44-yearold Pouch Cove man, was ar­rested by Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP af­ter po­lice found a quan­tity of stolen prop­erty and mar­i­juana in his ve­hi­cle dur­ing a traf­fic stop in Har­bour Grace in the early hours of Jan. 6.

RCMP Const. John Hedges said a sub­se­quent po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion led to the ar­rests of the other three.

“ Some of the stolen prop­erty re­cov­ered is as­so­ci­ated with re­cent cabin break-ins in the area,” Const. Hedges noted.

All four de­fen­dants have been re­leased from cus­tody and will ap­pear in Har­bour Grace Pro­vin­cial Court in March.
