The New Brunswick RCMP has arrested two men and seized firearms, drugs, and money as part of an ongoing drug investigation in Jacksonville, N.B.

On December 10, 2021, police executed a search warrant at a residence on Lockhart Mill Road as part of a drug trafficking investigation. A 29-year-old man and a 26-year-old man were arrested at the scene.

During the search, police seized significant quantities of what is believed to be cocaine, methamphetamine, psilocybin, and marijuana. Police also seized three firearms, ammunition, other prohibited weapons, money, and drug trafficking paraphernalia.

The 26-year-old man was released on conditions, and the 29-year-old man was kept in custody on an unrelated warrant of arrest. Both men are scheduled to appear in Woodstock Provincial Court on March 1, 2022.

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

The public plays an important role in helping to reduce, prevent and solve crime, including the trafficking of illegal drugs. Anyone with information about, or who suspects, illegal drug activity in their neighbourhood is asked to contact their local police. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), by downloading the secure P3 Mobile App, or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.

The investigation is ongoing.
