Police Seize 17 kg of Marijuana, $170K Cash in Charlottetown

RCMP released details of a drug bust on a Charlottetown home Wednesday.

The bust took place on April 24.

More than $170,000 cash was seized along with 17 kilograms of marijuana, 650 grams of hashish, more than 500 oxycodone pills, and some concentrated cannabis resin commonly known as budder.

RCMP said this is the first time police have seized budder on the Island.

They said they are concerned because it’s highly concentrated, expensive, and also dangerous.

“We have a concern when people are actually trying to manufacture these types of things because of the solvent, as everybody knows a solvent is explosive,” said Const. Scott Minty, who is with the RCMP’s federal investigative unit in Charlottetown.
