Canadian Press

FREDERICTON (CP) -- Police said Wednesday they've dismantled a major drug ring operating in New Brunswick and Quebec.

RCMP arrested 17 people from the Acadian Peninsula, Moncton, and the St.Antoine area in New Brunswick as well as in Montreal, a news release said.

The offences included trafficking and possession of cocaine and marijuana, and money laundering.

RCMP spokesman Gary Cameron said the investigation focused on a criminal organization responsible for the distribution of a large portion of cocaine used in eastern New Brunswick.

Police said the drugs are believed to have come from the Montreal area.
