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.
