Police officers from the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) of the MRC Pontiac carried out an arrest and two searches in connection with drug trafficking at a Mansfield residence last Wednesday, according to a SQ press release.
During the search at a home on Grand-Marais Street, the police seized more than 130 methamphetamine tablets, close to 55 grams of cocaine, more than $1,640 in cash, a 9 mm handgun and multiple other firearms.
A 48-year-old man from Mansfield was arrested and is being held in custody.
He is scheduled to appear in the Campbell’s Bay courthouse, where he could face charges of possession of drugs for the purposes of trafficking, and firearm offences.
The SQ said the investigation was prompted by information received from the public.
