Traffic Stop Uncovers Illicit Drugs, Stolen Vehicle

The New Brunswick RCMP arrested two men last week following a Dieppe traffic stop that uncovered a significant amount of illicit drugs and a stolen vehicle.

Members of the Codiac RCMP detachment conducted a traffic stop at around 10 p.m. on March 1, where they noticed a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot on Paul Street.

“Police determined that the license plate on the vehicle was fictitious, conducted a traffic stop and then found that the vehicle had also been reported as stolen,” Codiac Regional RCMP Cpl. Serge Lamothe in a statement issued Thursday.

“Police executed a search of the vehicle and seized quantities of what is believed to be crystal methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl, as well as drug trafficking paraphernalia and money.”

Officers arrested the 32-year-old male driver of the vehicle as well as a 34-year-old male passenger, who was later released.

Mounties say Jesse James Wallace made a virtual appearance on March 2 in Moncton Provincial Court to answer to three counts of possessing methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking.

Wallace, whom police released from custody, has another court date set for April 13.
