RCMP say traffic stop in Amherst leads to 'significant drug seizure'

RCMP say a traffic stop in Amherst has resulted in a marijuana grow-op being dismantled and a "significant drug seizure."

The traffic stop was conducted on Robert Angus Drive on Thursday. 

A vehicle was searched and a 38-year-old woman was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and cannabis marijuana. 

A search warrant was later executed at a home on Durley Street, which police say resulted in the seizure of a "significant quantity" of methamphetamine, three firearms, and cannabis marijuana. 

The grow operation was dismantled and a 37-year-old man was arrested without incident. 

The man has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine, production of cannabis marijuana, three counts of possession of a firearm while prohibited, three counts of unauthorized possession of firearms, and three counts of unsafe storage of firearms. 

The woman has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine and cannabis marijuana as well as possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine and cannabis marijuana. 

Both have been released and are scheduled to appear in court on September 17th. 

The investigation is ongoing.
