A search of a home in Tracadie Cross has led to drug trafficking charges against a 44-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman.

On Jan. 15 at around 12:30 a.m. members of the Kings and Queens Districts RCMP conducted a search that allegedly found marijuana and drug-related paraphernalia.

The man and the woman face drug trafficking charges under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act.

They were both released from custody and will appear in provincial court at a later date.

    They were charged with trafficking drugs...what part do you people not understand? They have broken the law and as the saying goes, YOU DO THE CRIME, YOU DO THE TIME! The RCMP were well aware what they were doing when this place was raided, they are not stupid. As far as only 6gms found, let's see how much there really was when it goes to court. I can't wait to be there to hear it all in person. Most of the comments made here were probably good buddies of the ones charged. The Laws are there for a reason and when you break them, you should be punished. So stop putting the RCMP down for doing their job!

    I would like to send a huge thanks to our police on keeping our communities free of these douche bags pot does led to other drugs which in turn leads to crimes there for unsafe communities its about time this stops I also believe police just don't go after people for petty crimes so which bags the question what else were these idiots doing? What kind of background/history do they have with the law?

    Seriously.... you are blaming the RCMP for doing their jobs! Holy crap.... next time it will be "they were just a little bit drunk while they were driving". Until marijuana is legalized it's still against the law and they are doing their job.

      Not the same community at all. Grand Tracadie is close to Pleasant Grove and whatever, drugs are in all communities.

    Boy the law against weed is no threatening peoples' human rights to privacy and protection from violence. If all this guy and his wife had was some weed then the law is wrong to destroy his and her life. Did the police shoot his dog while they were at it? Yes the police are only enforcing bad laws. And if he was trafficing then that's different... but if he and she were just having a bit of pot well, we have a major problem. Mr. Trudeau has stated the government's intention on this file, the police should back off pot users and focus their limited resources on more serious crime.

    Marijuana? Oh my goodness, TAKE OUR TAX DOLLARS AND PUT IT TOWARDS FOCUSING ON HARD DRUGS LIKE COCAINE AND HERION AND METH LABS, NOT A STONER WITH A BAG OF GRASS.

      Until its decriminalized, (and with the treaties we have, I seriously doubt it ever will be), the police must keep on doing what they are doing. They don't, nor shouldn't, decide what laws to enforce/not enforce.
