A 51-year-old man has been sentenced to two years behind bars for drug trafficking.

RCMP began an investigation in June in the Saint Andre LeBlanc area near Cap-Pele.

The Provincial Crime Reduction Unit began an investigation, and members,  with the assistance of members from the Shediac RCMP Detachment, executed a search warrant at a home on Route 945.

During the search, police seized a 22 calibre rifle, a significant quantity of what is believed to be cocaine, as well as money and drug trafficking paraphernalia.

A man from Saint-André-LeBlanc was arrested at the scene without incident.

Kevin Rene Leger pleaded guilty to several charges including possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine and possession of a firearm.

When he is released, he will be prohibited from owning firearms for life and will be required to submit a DNA sample.
