Trio charged in cocaine, meth bust in St. John's
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary released details Monday on a drug bust in downtown St. John's that scooped up cocaine and methamphetamine.
Zeshan Rasul, Bradley Noray and Amy Hall were arrested Saturday after RNC officers executed a search warrant at a business as well as a residence on Duckworth Street in St. John's. All are 32.
Rasul and Noray live in St. John's. Hall lives in Toronto.
All three were charged over the weekend with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. Rasul and Noray were also charged with possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.
Rasul was also charged with having a prohibited weapon, a hand-held stun gun, and for having no licence for it.
Hall also was charged with possession of methamphetamine.
The bust was a part of a three-month investigation, and the RNC credited the Trinity-Conception district of the RCMP for providing assistance in the bust.
Police did not have a street value on the drugs, but they seized seven ounces of cocaine and half an ounce of methamphetamine.
RNC Cst. Talia Murphy "This was an extensive investigation conducted by the RNC drug investigation unit. The exact information as to why we were of interest to these people won't be provided at this time."
Murphy said it is an ongoing investigation, and encouraged anyone with more information to contact the police or CrimeStoppers.
