WAYCOBAH: The search of a home in this community resulted in the seizure of drugs and possession charges against two people.

On February 16, the Street Crime Enforcement Unit of Inverness District RCMP searched a Waycobah First Nation residence, following an investigation. Police found “quantities of marijuana products and oxycodone pills.”
