Edmundston police arrest two men on meth and marijuana charges

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — Tommy Soucy, 42, and Jason Soucy, 43, both of Edmundston, appeared before a provincial court judge in Edmundston, Oct. 2, to respond to drug charges stemming from arrests late last month.

Members of the Edmundston Police Force patrol and street crime divisions executed a  search warrant on Sept. 29 at a dwelling on D’Amour Street in Edmundston, after which both men were arrested, according to a statement released by police Thursday.

Both men were charged with non-compliance with probation conditions and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.

During the search, police seized a large quantity of methamphetamine, marijuana and a sum of money, according to the release.

Tommy Soucy was released under certain conditions, which police did not specify, and will have to appear again before a Provincial Court judge in Edmundston on Oct. 31. Jason Soucy remains in custody and is scheduled to return to court on Oct. 17.

Neither individual has yet entered a plea. The two men are not related, according to Edmundston Police Inspector Alain Lang.

In August, Edmundston police arrested two other men on charges of possession of methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. Police also charged a man in April with possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.
