Couple charged after pounds of pot seized

A Terrace couple is facing serious charges after trying to bring 28 pounds of marijuana into their community, RCMP said this morning in a press release.

That’s enough marijuana to produce in excess of 35,000 joints, the release added.

The investigation stretches back to the summer of 2010, when the E Division Federal Drug Enforcement Branch in Prince Rupert, along with regional and detachment resources, determined that a husband and wife team were buying marijuana in the Lower Mainland and using a truck to transport the drug to Terrace, police allege.

Charged with two (2) counts of Possession of Marijuana for the Purpose of Trafficking is 49 year old Kerry Lynn Primeau. She was arrested September 22, 2010 in Chilliwack with 25 pounds of marijuana.

Charged with three (3) counts of Possession of Marijuana for the Purpose of Trafficking is 46 year old Michael Wesley Primeau. He was arrested January 11, 2011 in Hope with 3 pounds of marijuana. On January 12, 2011 his wife Kerry was again arrested, this time at the family home in Terrace, in possession of ½ pound of marijuana.

 Along with the drugs, a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado was also seized.

 Both will make their first appearance in Terrace court on October 11, 2011.
