Cocaine seized in Gold River drug bust

Two Lunenburg County men have been charged following a drug bust in Gold River.

Police executed a search warrant at a home in the community Saturday morning and made the arrests.

A search of the residence led to the seizure of cocaine, cash, scales, and packaging materials.

48-year-old Steven Joseph Pennell is due in court tomorrow for a bail hearing and has been charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

The second man has been released, but RCMP say further charges in the case are possible as they continue to investigate.
