Police officers from the MRC Pontiac station of the Sûreté du Québec carried out, on Friday, December 4, an arrest and a search for narcotics in Bristol. A 43-year-old man was arrested and then released with a warning. He is due to return to court, at the Cambell’s Bay Courthouse, at a later date where he could face charges of drug trafficking and breach of probation.
During a search of a home on Bristol Mines Road in Bristol, police seized nearly 50 grams of cocaine, a weapon, a cell phone and cash. This police operation is carried out within the framework of the ACCES-Cannabis program, whose mission is to reduce the accessibility of illicit cannabis on the Quebec market, particularly among young people, and to reduce unfair competition from illegal producers and traffickers.
The Sûreté du Québec reminds that any information relating to the trafficking or production of narcotics can be communicated confidentially at any time to the Central Criminal Information Center at 1 800 659-4264.
