Man charged with importation and trafficking of drugs

A package of drugs ordered from China and sent via mail to Nova Scotia has been intercepted by RCMP and CBSA officials. A Dartmouth man has been arrested as a result. The contents of the package were confirmed to be MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy.

The delivery was monitored by police, and was delivered to a home in Stellarton. It was then transported to a home in Dartmouth where the suspect opened it. The suspect then attempted to flee the area, but he was quickly apprehended on Windmill Rd in Dartmouth on December 19, close to 9 p.m.

Ethan Shane Archibald, 20, of Stellarton has been charged with Importation of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking. He appeared yesterday in Dartmouth Provincial Court and has been remanded until his next appearance on December 27.

The investigation is ongoing.
