Man Faces Three Counts Of Trafficking Cocaine, ‘Shady 8s’

A 34-year-old man is in custody after being charged with trafficking several substances, including a drug more deadly than fentanyl.

Jason Duguay of Des Acadiens Boulevard in Bertrand, N.B., went before a Moncton judge Monday for a scheduled bail hearing.

It was put off until Friday to give Duguay time to find a lawyer.

Duguay is charged with three counts of possessing cocaine, meth and isotonitazene, also known as “Shady 8,” for the purpose of trafficking.

Shady 8 is an opioid believed to be stronger than fentanyl and the culprit behind recent fatal overdoses.
