11 charged in marijuana raids to enter pleas later Charges stem from Jan. 24 raids at 6 medical marijuana locations in Saint John

Eleven people facing drug trafficking-related charges in connection with a series of police raids at medical marijuana dispensaries in Saint John earlier this year have had their court cases set over until May 30 without entering any pleas.

William Caines, Sarah Deering, Ronald Flynn, Ryan Francis, Lance Kangos, Sarah Kirbyson, Jonathan Lambert, Brian Lloyd, Kyle Owens, Mark Splude, and Kyle Vizino all either owned or worked for the dispensaries, according to Saint John police.

All 11 made brief appearances in Saint John provincial court on Tuesday morning on charges of either drug trafficking or possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

The charges stem from the execution of simultaneous search warrants at six dispensaries on Jan. 24 as part of a joint-police forces operation.

The locations included:

  • Medicinal Grounds, 104 Prince William St.
  • Medicinal Grounds, 505 Rothesay Ave.
  • BCW, 8 Simpson Dr.
  • King Canna, 76 Germain St.
  • HBB Medical Inc., 1714 Rothesay Rd.
  • HBB Medical Inc., 199 Chesley Dr.

A 12th accused did not appear in court Tuesday.
