Mounties seized almost 120,000 contraband cigarettes following a traffic stop near Upper Rexton this week.

Around 3 p.m. on October 3, members of the RCMP Tactical Traffic Enforcement Unit (TTEU) conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on Route 116 near Upper Rexton.

Police say the driver of the vehicle, a 64-year-old Moncton man, was found to be in possession of a significant quantity of contraband cigarettes.

The man was arrested at the scene without incident.

Following the arrest, police searched the vehicle and seized a total of 119,400 cigarettes.

The vehicle was towed.

The 64-year-old man was later released and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court in February 2023.
