Fifty Pounds of Cannabis

A thirty year old man was arrested last week with no less than 50 pounds of cannabis hidden in two suitcases in the trunk of his vehicle.

CannabisCharles Turcotte was stopped in Clermont, Charlevoix, following up on a vast police investigation by the regional squads of Sept-Îles and Québec.

“He was going to deliver it to Sept-Îles for the local market.
We know that this is related to organized crime”, said Richard Gagné, spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec.

The young man, who has no criminal record, appeared in court in Québec.
The Crown was opposed to his release.  He will re-appear in court next week.
