A 56-year-old man is facing more charges in a wide-spread investigation into drug trafficking around the tent city in Lower Sackville.

Police believe the man was selling to those camped out at the ball field near the hospital.

During a search earlier this month, they found cocaine, pills and weapons while further investigation led to the discovery of a shotgun, weed and stolen power tools.

The Lower Sackville man is facing 11 charges in total.

Dozens of people are living in tents near the hospital in Lower Sackville, and police made the arrest after being tipped off about some illegal activity in the area.

Inspector Cory Bushell says it’s alarming the accused targeted vulnerable unhoused people and police will work to keep those areas safe.
