Man Charged, Woman Arrested After Tabusintac Drug Bust

The New Brunswick RCMP arrested a 55-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman after a drug-trafficking investigation in Tabusintac, N.B.

Mounties began to investigate drug trafficking in July near the Acadian Peninsula, Miramichi, Esgenoôpetitj First Nation and the Greater Moncton regions.

Police arrested 55-year-old Remi Duguay on Aug. 24 in connection with the investigation. Officers also searched a home on Cains Point Road and arrested the unnamed 25-year-old woman.

Police say she was released and will appear in Miramichi Provincial Court on Aug. 29 at 9:30 a.m.

The RCMP seized large quantities of crystal meth, cocaine, methamphetamine pills, pills possibly containing fentanyl, oxycodone pills, hydromorphone pills and other prescription pills.

Police also seized a large quantity of money and drug-trafficking paraphernalia.

Duguay appeared in Miramichi Provincial Court via tele-remand on Aug. 25, where a judge charged him with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine.

Police say he was remanded into custody and will return to court for a bail hearing on Aug. 29 at 9:30 a.m.

“This seizure represents a serious disruption to the illegal drug trade,” said Cpl. Hans Ouellette of the New Brunswick RCMP.

“The public can help us reduce the impact that illicit drugs have in our communities by reporting suspicious or illegal activity to police.”

Anyone with information regarding possible illegal drug activity in their neighbourhood can contact local police or Crime Stoppers.
