Grand Pré - A 25-year-old man stands accused of possessing shatter for the purpose of trafficking after a weekend traffic stop in Grand Pré.

According to a press release issued by the Nova Scotia RCMP March 1, the arrest was made in relation to a search conducted at about 1:30 p.m. Feb. 28.

“Annapolis Valley RCMP Traffic Services were conducting a checkpoint when they made observations that occupants in a vehicle may be transporting marihuana products. As a result, RCMP seized a small amount of marihuana and…32 grams of shatter,” the release reads.

“RCMP arrested the 25-year-old male passenger of the vehicle.”

The media release, issued by Cpl. Michael Hynes of Annapolis Valley Traffic Services, describes shatter as “a highly potent derivative of marijuana.”

The accused has been released from custody. He is due back in Kentville provincial court May 16.

The matter is still under investigation.
