Three peo­ple stand charged fol­low­ing a po­lice search of a New Glas­gow cannabis dis­pen­sary.

On Thurs­day, Aug. 30 at around 5:30 p.m., the Pic­tou County In­te­grated Street Crime En­force­ment Unit, with the as­sis­tance of the New Glas­gow Re­gional Po­lice, ex­e­cuted a search war­rant at Sco­tia Green Inc., cannabis dis­pen­sary, 559 East River Rd., New Glas­gow.

Po­lice seized a quan­tity of cannabis mar­i­juana, resin, deriva­tives, and cash.

Po­lice ar­rested a 32-year-old man from Mount Uni­acke, Nova Sco­tia, a 57-year-old woman from Tren­ton, and a 43-year-old woman from Pic­tou.

Both women were fac­ing two counts of traf­fick­ing, two counts of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing, and one count each for pro­duc­tion of a con­trolled sub­stance.

The male is fac­ing one count for pro­duc­tion of a con­trolled sub­stance along with two counts of traf­fick­ing and two counts of pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing.

This isn’t the first time po­lice have raided the business. Three peo­ple were also ar­rested fol­low­ing a search at the dis­pen­sary in May.
