The RCMP arrested a man after executing a search warrant at a home near St. Jean Elementary School in Charlottetown on Dec. 19.
A 56-year-old man was arrested recently after police found drugs, more than $30,000 in cash and a loaded handgun in a home near St. Jean Elementary School in Charlottetown.
On Dec. 19, the RCMP’s Queens District street level drug unit and the Charlottetown police street team executed a search warrant at a home on Spring Park Road behind the school.
They arrested the man who has since been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
A search of the home found prescription pills, including 90 Percocet pills, cigarettes, cash and the loaded gun.
The police are reminding the public to report any activities that are unusual in nature.
“This event, so close to an elementary school facility, is very alarming and residents as well as police are determined to stop this type of criminal activity in our neighbourhoods,” an RCMP statement said.
