Two Quebec men charged Thursday with drug-related offences, after their vehicle was stopped on the Trans Canada Highway west of Corner Brook, were to be released from custody today after each posted a cash surety of $5,000 with the court.
The men, 61 and 45, from Rigaud, Quebec, were in provincial court in Corner Brook today.
On Thursday morning following a traffic stop, RCMP officers from Deer Lake seized approximately 55 pounds of marijuana and one kilogram of hashish from the vehicle.
Both males were arrested and charged with two counts each of possession for purpose of trafficking, two counts of trafficking, and one count of possession, all under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
