Two Big Seizures In Less Than Two Days

Posted on Monday, June 19, 2017 15:03 PM

Nearly 400,000 stolen smokes seized in less than 48 hours.

Around 2pm on Friday, the Mounties stopped a vehicle near Bedell, New Brunswick and a search of the car led to the discovery of 120-thousand illegal cigarettes in the trunk.

A 20-year-old man from Fredericton has a court appearance.

Another vehicle was stopped near Waterville on Saturday just before 1pm and a search resulted in the seizure of 270-thousand illegal cigarettes.

Two men from Nova Scotia are due before a judge and the Mounties do not think the two seizures are related.
