Large quantities of Dilaudid pills found in Boiestown, NB




In the early hours of January 21st, 2003 members of the Greater Fredericton drug enforcement J.F.O. unit (RCMP/Fredericton Police Force) with the assistance of the Fredericton RCMP Customs and Excise unit intercepted a suspect in Fredericton who was in possession of a large quantity of Dilaudid pills. The investigation that began a few weeks prior produced a seizure of approximately 1500 Dilaudid pills and a quantity of illegal tobacco. Also seized was the 1999 Ford Expedition Limited Edition driven by the suspect at that time. A search warrant was subsequently executed at the residence of the suspect in the area of Boiestown, NB where over 300 Dilaudid were found as well as approximately $84,000.00 in Canadian and US currency, all of which was hidden in a safe at the residence.

Much of the prescription drugs were believed to be destined for the Doaktown, Boiestown and Fredericton underground drug market. There has been an increased concern in those areas with the problem of prescription drug abuse. At this point the investigation is continuing. A man from Boiestown has been arrested and faces charges.
