A provincial court judge sentenced a Campbellton man last month to five years behind bars following a drug trafficking investigation by the New Brunswick RCMP.
Mounties arrested James Aaron St-Onge, 44, on July 12, 2022, in connection with an ongoing drug trafficking investigation.
Police say officers seized cocaine, methamphetamine pills and money, as well as more of both substances and drug-trafficking paraphernalia from a home on Dover Street.
St-Onge appeared in Campbellton Provincial Court on July 13 via tele-remand to face possession charges of trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine.
“On Dec. 21, James Aaron St-Onge was sentenced to five years in prison on the above charges, as well as charges stemming from a separate file from 2020,” said New Brunswick RCMP Cpl. Hans Ouellette in a statement issued Tuesday.
“Upon his release, he will be banned from owning prohibited firearms and restricted firearms for life, and will be required to submit a DNA sample.”
An investigation into drug trafficking remains ongoing. Anyone with information about, or who suspects, illegal drug activity can contact local police or Crime Stoppers.
Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story indicated the New Brunswick RCMP sentenced James Aaron St-Onge to five years in prison. This is not accurate. In fact, a provincial court judge sentenced St-Onge. NB News Now regrets this error.
