BIBLE HILL, N.S.
Four people are facing drug trafficking charges following a Wednesday raid on a marijuana dispensary in Bible Hill.
RCMP spokesperson Jennifer Clarke said the arrests occurred following a four-month investigation on the Main Street business by the Colchester District RCMP with assistance from the Colchester Street Crime Enforcement Unit (SCEU).
She said the search of the “illegal marihuana” storefront operation resulted in the seizure of quantities of marijuana and marijuana edibles.
The site was the home of Maritime Medicinal at 27 Main St., and all exterior signage and information related to the business has been removed from the building.
The arrests include a 44-year-old man from Truro, a 38-year-old man from Truro, a 25-year-old man from Lower Onslow and a 31-year-old woman from Truro.
All four individuals are facing charges of trafficking in a controlled substance. Their identities have not been released.
The 44 year-old man and the woman appeared in provincial court in Truro on Thursday and were released on conditions after being held in custody overnight. They are to appear in court on Oct. 30 to enter pleas.
The other two individuals are scheduled to appear in provincial court on Dec. 12.
