News release
A 25-year-old woman from Moncton, N.B., has been sentenced to a total of eight years in prison following two drug trafficking investigations in the community, one of which resulted in what is believed to be the largest seizure of crystal methamphetamine in the province’s history, last January.
On June 7, 2022, Courtney Kenny appeared in Moncton Provincial Court and pled guilty to six charges in connection with the investigations:
She was sentenced to a total of eight years in prison. Following her release from prison, she will be prohibited from possessing weapons for life.
The charges and the subsequent sentence stem from two drug trafficking investigations. On May 16, 2020, a 23-year-old woman was arrested as part of an investigation led by the Codiac RCMP Crime Reduction Unit. Police seized drugs, prohibited weapons and drug-trafficking paraphernalia at the scene. The woman was released by the Court on conditions at the time.
On January 5, 2022, Courtney Kenny was arrested in Moncton in connection with an investigation led by the RCMP Provincial Crime Reduction Unit. At the time, police seized nearly 20 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine (approximately 44 pounds) as well as prohibited weapons and drug-trafficking paraphernalia when executing search warrants in the Moncton and Pine Glen areas as part of the investigation.
A 41-year-old woman and 37-year-old man were also arrested on January 5. On June 13, Nicole Claire Lavoie pled guilty to possession of crystal methamphetamine and received a 6-month conditional sentence. On March 28, Aaron Tayler was charged with possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking and was released on conditions. His matter is still before the courts.
