Drug seizure at docks in Bay Roberts
Searches taken aboard three vessels in Bay Roberts and St. Anthony resulted in the seizure of drugs and contraband tobacco, amongst other items.
According to a Canada Border Services Agency news release, approximately 450 grams of hashish and 35 cartons of contraband tobacco were seized during the searches, which started Nov. 13 and continued into the early hours of the following day. Also seized was a small amount of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a firearm silencer.
Two crewmembers that reportedly were found with small amounts of hashish in their cabins were arrested and later released. The investigation continues.
RCMP officers in Bay Roberts and St. Anthony assisted border services agents with the searches.
Canada Border Services Agency reportedly seized these items in Bay Roberts last month.
