CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - More than 11,000 methamphetamine pills won’t be hitting the streets in P.E.I. and New Brunswick after a seizure last week.
The RCMP reported that on Jan. 24 officers from the federal investigation unit in Charlottetown stopped a vehicle on the highway near Edmundston, N.B.
During a search of the vehicle officers found more than 11,000 thousands methamphetamine pills weighing a total of about 11 pounds.
The RCMP said they also found a small amount of cocaine.
Officers from the Edmundston police helped the RCMP with the stop and search.
Some of the rectangular pills were stamped with the word “ICE” while others were stamped with “STAR.”
The RCMP said the pills were packaged for wide distribution and the police believe they were destined for sale in New Brunswick and P.E.I.
A 27-year-old man and a 49-year-old man from Quebec and a 25-year-old man from New Brunswick are facing drug-related charges after their arrest.
The RCMP said the investigation is continuing with further arrests and charges possible.
