The RCMP and the Edmundston Police Force have confiscated over 11,000 methamphetamine pills as a result of a traffic stop in northwestern New Brunswick.

The seizure took place last Wednesday, after officers from the federal investigation unit in Charlottetown stopped a vehicle on a highway near Edmundston.

During their search, officers say they discovered about 11 pounds of meth and a small quantity of cocaine in the vehicle. All of the pills were rectangular and stamped with the words “ICE” or “STAR" and were packaged for distribution.

The RCMP believe that the meth was destined to be sold in New Brunswick as well as Prince Edward Island.

Police say three men in the vehicle were arrested. A 27-year-old man and 49-year-old man, both from Quebec, and a 25-year-old man from New Brunswick are facing drug-related charges.

The Mounties are still investigating the case and say and more arrests and charges are possible.
