Two Charged Following Moncton Drug Bust

Four people were arrested last week after Codiac RCMP searched a Moncton home and discovered several illicit drugs and firearms.

Mounties say they searched a home on High Street on March 2 at around 4 p.m.

“During the search, police seized two prohibited firearms, a loaded non-restricted firearm, ammunition, quantities of what are believed to be methamphetamine, hydromorphone, cocaine and various non-prescribed pills,” said Codiac RCMP Cpl. Mathieu Potvin.

“Police also seized drug trafficking paraphernalia and cash during the search.”

Mounties arrested two men and two women at the scene. A 36-year-old man and a 43-year-old woman were later released, but are scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on June 6.

Police say Kenneth Maccallum, 43, and Denesha Savoie, 28, appeared before a judge on March 3 to face charges. Justice officials charged the pair with unsafe storage and unauthorized possession of a firearm, and cocaine possession for trafficking purposes.

Maccallum also received a charge for possessing a firearm contrary to an order, while Savoie was given two counts for failing to comply with the conditions of a release order.

Police say both were released, adding that Savoie is expected back in provincial court on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Maccallum is also scheduled to return to court, but police did not say when.
