Police in Saint John involved in a drug trafficking investigation in the city’s north end have seized upwards of $30,000 in illicit drugs.
The force said Wednesday officers arrested three people on Tuesday afternoon as a result of the investigation.
During the arrests, police seized between $25,000 and $30,000 worth of drugs, including about 40 grams of fentanyl, 1.26 grams of cocaine and nearly half a grams of crystal meth.
They also seized approximately $840 in Canadian cash, a .357 replica pellet gun and drug paraphernalia.
“A 39-year-old woman was arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking fentanyl and methamphetamine as well as possession of property obtained by crime and driving while suspended under the Motor Vehicle Act of New Brunswick,” said police spokesperson Sean Rocca.
“She appeared in court on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, and she was remanded to jail until June 22, 2023, for a bail hearing.”
Investigators say a 39-year-old man was also arrested for possession of fentanyl. The man will appear in court this September.
Meanwhile, a 22-year-old woman was also arrested, but has been released without charges.
