Two Arrested After Moncton Drug Trafficking Investigation

A drug investigation fronted by the New Brunswick RCMP led to the arrests of a 43-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman from Moncton.

Codiac RCMP and the New Brunswick Integrated Enforcement Unit began an investigation last month into illegal drug trafficking in the area.

Police say officers searched a home on Waverly Avenue on Monday, where they seized quantities of what is believed to be crystal meth, fentanyl and amphetamine.

Officers also seized a number of weapons and money.

“On January 12, a 43-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman were both arrested at a residence in Moncton in connection with the investigation,” said Codiac RCMP Sgt. Marco Leger.

“The woman was later released.”

Investigators say 43-year-old Daniel Troop appeared in Moncton Provincial Court on the same day to face charges of trafficking methamphetamine, fentanyl and amphetamine.

He also faces charges for the following:

  • Unsafe storage of firearms
  • Unauthorized possession of a firearm/prohibited weapon or restricted weapon
  • Possession of property obtained by crime less than $5,000
  • Failure to comply with release order condition

Police say they remanded Troop into custody before his next court date on Jan. 16.
