Eight Years In Prison Following Drug Trafficking Investigations

By Brad Perry Oct 21, 2022 | 5:30 AM

Eight years in prison for a Moncton woman arrested after what is believed to be the province’s largest crystal meth seizure.

Courtney Kenny pleaded guilty to six charges in June, including possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking, and unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon.

The 25-year-old was one of three people charged following a January bust in the Greater Moncton region.

RCMP said officers seized around 44 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, along with prohibited weapons and drug-trafficking paraphernalia, when executing search warrants in the Moncton and Pine Glen areas on Jan. 5.

A 41-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man were also arrested that same day.

Nicole Claire Lavoie received a six-month conditional sentence after pleading guilty to possession of crystal methamphetamine. Aaron Tayler is charged with possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; his matter is still before the courts.

Meanwhile, Kenny was also arrested in May 2020 in connection with a separate drug trafficking investigation. Police said they seized drugs, prohibited weapons, and drug-trafficking paraphernalia at the scene.

In addition to her prison sentence, Kenny is prohibited from possessing weapons for life.
