Montreal man charged following N.B. traffic stop

Police say a Montreal man has been charged with drug trafficking after a traffic stop in northwestern New Brunswick.

RCMP Sgt. Rheo Michaud said officers pulled over a vehicle on Highway 17 near Saint-Quentin on Tuesday.

"A search of the car led to the discovery of substantial quantities of what is believed to be cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as varying amounts of steroids and marijuana," Michaud said in a news release.

Justin Fortin was charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking during a court appearance Wednesday.

The 26-year-old was remanded into custody pending a bail hearing on Monday.

Michaud said the investigation is continuing.
