Moncton man who violated court orders charged with cocaine trafficking

A man who violated court-ordered conditions and was arrested for allegedly trafficking cocaine has been charged, according to the Codiac RCMP.

Rhéal Cormier, 55, of Moncton, appeared in Provincial Court on Oct. 25 and was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine.

It follows an ongoing drug trafficking investigation by Codiac RCMP that began in August.

Mounties said officers searched a home on Elmwood Drive on Oct. 24 in connection with the investigation.

“During the search, police seized quantities of what is believed to be cocaine, drug trafficking paraphernalia and money,” the RCMP said.

“A 55-year-old man was arrested at the scene, and was found to be in violation of conditions set out by the court in relation to an unrelated file.”

Police did not indicate what the unrelated file is.

Following Cormier’s appearance in court, he was remanded into custody.

According to the provincial court docket, Cormier is scheduled for a bail hearing on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
