A second search warrant was executed the same day at Queen E-Smoke and Vape Outlet at 540 Pinewood Rd. in Riverview, N.B.

The release says a 42-year-old Moncton woman who worked at the store was arrested and charges are pending.

She was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on July 29.

During that search, peace officers seized:

  • 529 grams of dried cannabis
