Four Woodstock Residents Arrested For Drug Trafficking

Search warrants at two Woodstock apartments on Wednesday led to the arrests of four people.

The Woodstock Police Force searched the two units at a residence on Broadway Street early Wednesday morning.

Officers say four people were arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking charges, but a news release from the force didn’t say for which substance.

“These search warrants were part of an ongoing investigation by Woodstock Police Force and the Province of New Brunswick, Dept. of Justice and Public Safety Investigation and Enforcement Unit,” read the news release from the force.

Police say charges are expected under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and NB Tobacco Tax Act, adding that an investigation is ongoing.

In the meantime, the Woodstock Police Force asks community members to report illegal drug activity immediately, adding that they can do so anonymously through Crime Stoppers.

“Our police agency is committed to raising awareness related to the effects of these drugs within our community,” said the force.

“Woodstock Police Force and our law enforcement partners will continue to work collaboratively and with our community to address the concerns of illicit drugs.”
