Masset RCMP seized $13,000 worth of marijuana, more than $20,000 in cash and six firearms from a house in Masset on Thursday (June 16), says Const. Trevor Shields. RCMP also arrested four adults during their search of the house, two Masset residents and two from off-island. All are scheduled to appear in provincial court in October. Const.

The police seized 52 ounces of marijuana (with an estimated street value of $13,000), $20,325 in cash, and six firearms, he said. The RCMP continues its investigation into the matter.
