Two Kings County men are facing charges following a joint investigation conducted by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Nova Scotia RCMP Serious and Organized Crime Unit.
On March 11th, 2015 CBSA intercepted a package from Colombia that was found to contain approximately 520 grams of cocaine. CBSA officers then contacted the RCMP about the shipment which led to a further investigation in order to identify the individuals responsible for the importation.
With assistance from the Kings District RCMP Detachment and Kings County Integrated Street Crime Enforcement Unit (SCEU,) on March 16th at 2:40 p.m. RCMP and CBSA arrested Kyle Delbert Hill, 25, of Greenwich and Ronald Emerson Rogers, 45, of Wolfville at a residence on Ridge Rd in Wolfville. Police also executed a search warrant at a Greenwich residence and seized a number of electronic devices including computers and cell phones.
Kyle Delbert Hill and Ronald Emerson Rogers appeared in Kentville Provincial Court yesterday on charges of Importation of Cocaine and Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking. The investigation is continuing.
Cocaine is one of the illegal drugs most commonly imported into Canada. This illegal drug trade brings violence and other associated crimes into our communities and neighborhoods. The RCMP and CBSA continue to work together to keep illegal drugs out of our country and our communities.
