Man fac­ing drug charges

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

A 54-year-old man from On­tario faces a drug charge fol­low­ing a traf­fic stop near Bay Roberts Fri­day, July 8.

Fol­low­ing a lengthy drug in­ves­ti­ga­tion, mem­bers of the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP stopped a trac­tor trailer at around 11 p. m. The ve­hi­cle was seized and a search war­rant was ex­e­cuted, which re­sulted in the seizure of ap­prox­i­mately 10 pounds (some 4.5 kilo­grams) of mar­i­juana. Const. Shawn Green called it a “sig­nif­i­cant” drug seizure. The ac­cused was later re­leased from po­lice cus­tody and will face charges un­der the Con­trolled Drugs and Sub­stances Act when he ap­pears in Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court on Oct. 17.

Shown here is the mar­i­juana s e i ze d i n B ay Roberts July 8.
