A White Rock man has been arrested on the East Coast in connection with “one of the biggest drug busts” in Newfoundland and Labrador’s history.

At a press conference Monday, Const. Dave Emberley of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit told reporters that the 41-year-old was arrested in St. John’s, Nfld., on May 6 as the result of the ‘Project Titan’ investigation.

Subsequent to the arrest, five search warrants were executed in the St. John’s area, Emberley said.

“As a result of these search warrants, we seized 10 kilograms of cocaine, 300 pounds of marijuana, two kilograms of pure MDMA and two kilograms of a substance known as ‘shatter’, which is a chemical derived from marijuana.”

Arlen Nathan Hodge was due to appear in Newfoundland Provincial Court today, on drug-related charges.
