A 32-year-old man from Tobique First Nation, N.B., has been arrested following a street level drug trafficking investigation in the community.

On August 26, 2022, at approximately 8 a.m., the New Brunswick RCMP Provincial Crime Reduction Unit (PCRU) executed a search warrant at a residence on Loop Road in Tobique First Nation. During the search, police seized quantities of what is believed to be cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, hydromorphone pills, a quantity of unknown pills, drug trafficking paraphernalia, and money.

A 32-year-old man was arrested at the scene. He was later released and is scheduled to appear in Woodstock Provincial Court on October 25.

This investigation was the result of an operation by the Provincial Crime Reduction Unit, which includes police officers from the New Brunswick RCMP and Fredericton Police Force. Members of Western Valley Region RCMP assisted with the search. These efforts focus on disrupting and dismantling the trafficking of illegal drugs in our province, targeting those causing the most harm in our communities.
