A 33-year-old man from Dieppe, and a 22-year-old man from Riverview were arrested and released. 

The arrests were made after RCMP executed a search warrant at 12 Subway Street. 

In a news release, police said they started investigating Dec. 30 after receiving complaints about the business. 

"The investigation led us to believe the activity at the business contravened the Canadian law and that prompted us to execute a search warrant there," said Const. Hans Ouelette. 

"The sale of marijuana through a storefront is not legal in Canada." 

A substantial amount of what is believed to be marijuana, and other edible marijuana products were seized by RCMP.

Police said cash was also seized during the search.

Both men are scheduled to appear in provincial court in Campbellton in June. 

Police said they are continuing to investigate.
