Canadian Crime News, Atlantic: New Brunswick


The Daily Gleaner, Fredericton,NB

Two men from Cape Breton and one from Quebec who conducted a drug deal in view of RCMP officers at the Lincoln Big Stop last winter all earned stays in federal prison Friday.

Roy Tontarelli, 40, of Eskasoni, N.S., Robert Edmund Matheson, 35, of Glace Bay, N.S., and Shawn Snider, 40, of Pointe-Claire, Que., were all found guilty after trial earlier this fall of trafficking more than three kilograms of marijuana Feb. 21.

Snider drove from Quebec, while the other two men drove from Cape Breton, and they met at the Lincoln Big Stop between Fredericton and Oromocto.

However, at the time of the meeting, RCMP officers were in the Big Stop parking lot, waiting to meet with an informant in an unrelated matter.

The officers noticed the drivers of the vehicles acting suspiciously, and they saw them exchange a duffel bag from one car to the other.

RCMP officers pulled the vehicles over shortly after they left the area.

They found $16,000 in cash in Snider's car, which was headed back to Quebec, and they found 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds) of marijuana.

How Canada could legalize marijuana, use the revenue generated to get us out of deficit and at the same time snuff out the Black Market:

"If government legally Charges 15 / 20 bucks per 7 grams instead of the black markets 50 - 70, you are seriously under cutting black market prices and taking away from incentive for illegal grow ops and hydro thieves."

It was Joe "Sh*thead" McKinnon who told police! The police didn't stumble upon the deal! This is how the police put to story in the paper, so people can't figure out who done what! Also, "wife of one"! You recently got up on the stand in a courtroom and help get getting me convicted (18 months Probation)! "What this and what's that??!!
