Groupe intégré de l'application de la loi du Nouveau-Brunswick

On March 13th, 2024, the New Brunswick Integrated Law Enforcement Unit, of which the Grand Falls Police Force is member, in collaboration with the Edmundston Police Force and the RCMP, executed a search warrant in a residence located in the Haut-Madawaska region.


During the search, a significant quantity of narcotics, suspected methamphetamine tablets, powdered and rock cocaïne, as well as other types of narcotics were seized. Several prohibited firearms, equipment for manufacturing and modifying firearms, a large quantity of cash and items related to the sale of narcotics were also seized.


This search led to the arrest of two individuals, a 25-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man, Mr. Dave Plourde-Landry.


Mr. Plourde-Landry appeared in Edmundston Provincial Court on the morning of March 14th, 2024, and was charged with possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. He remains incarcerated until his release hearing, set for Monday March 18th, 2024 at 1:30 p.m., still at the Edmundston Provincial Court. The investigation is ongoing.


The New Brunswick Integrated Law Enforcement Unit is composed of members of the RCMP and municipal police services, as well as employees of the province's Department of Justice and Public Safety. Their efforts aim to intervene in a more coordinated manner to counter organized crime and crimes related to drugs and weapons, which are of increasing concern in the province.
