Man Tries To Bring Cocaine Into Court, And Other Tales From The Police Blotter

It was a rather busy weekend for the Saint John Police Department.

Over the weekend, two men ages 38 and 42, and a 32-year-old woman were arrested  after a bar fight. They were released without charges once they'd sobered up, but a 35 year old was also charged with assaulting a peace officer.

As well, Sergeant Jay Henderson of the Saint John Police Department says fire officials are investigating a suspicious fire uptown on Charles Street.

In what might be called a poorly-thought out move, a 24 year old man who was going to see his probation officer at court was found to be in possession of cocaine. Police found the cocaine during a routine scan as he was entering the Law Courts at Peel Plaza. He has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
