A 48-year-old man will face charges related to possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking after RCMP executed a search warrant at his Albion Cross residence early today.
Members of the Kings District Street Level Drug Unit were assisted by uniform members from the Kings District RCMP in conducting the search. A quantity of hydromorphine and oxycodone were seized during the search.
The accused was arrested at the scene and later released and will be appearing in court in January 2014.
“The misuse of prescription medication such as hydromorphine and oxycodone is behind a significant number of crimes not directly related to drug misuse, and the apprehension of those trafficking in these substances remains a priority of the Kings District Street Level Drug Unit,” an RCMP news release states.
