Houston RCMP make cocaine bust

Four people facing charges

Three people, all from Houston, are facing drug charges following a number of seizures, reports Sergeant Jason Burndred, the officer in command of the RCMP detachment here.

“We seized a little under an ounce of cocaine from the locations,” said Burndred of search warrants executed at four separate residences.

Charges pending are for narcotics trafficking, he said.

A large quantity of marijuana was also seized as was a quantity of cash.
