MONTAGUE - A 22 year old man will face charges related to possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
RCMP executed a search warrant at a Montague apartment in the early morning hours of Feb. 12 where a quantity of marijuana and percocets, as well as paraphernalia related to drug trafficking, were seized during the search.
The accused was arrested and later released and will be appearing in court at a future date to enter a plea on the charges.
Police said the misuse of prescription medication such as percocet 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.
The Kings District Street Level Drug Unit was assisted by uniform members from the Kings District RCMP in conducting the search.
