OHSWEKEN — Six Nations Police say a man and woman living on Fourth Line are once again facing drug trafficking charges — for the fourth time in six years.
Mary Louella Longboat, 65; and Vernon Scott Hill, 68 were arrested as part of a drug warrant search of a home on Fourth Line on June 17. That search turned out a quantity of cocaine and oxycodone, along with cash and drug paraphernalia.
Police said in a statement that both are currently facing charges of Trafficking Cocaine, Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking Cocaine & Oxycodone and Proceeds of Crime over $5,000.
This is not the first time the couple were arrested and faced drug trafficking on Six Nations. In March 2016, Six Nations Police announced the two were arrested and charged during a search warrant at their residence at 2882 Fourth Line Road.
Again, in October 2018, at the same residence the two were arrested along with Joseph William Powless and Chelsea Jade Hess and charged with trafficking cocaine and cannabis. At that time 4 children were located at the residence when police conducted the search warrant and Six Nations Child Protection Services were called in to assist with the children. Longboat was held for a bail hearing in that instance and the other three were released with a promise to appear in court.
One month later, in November 2018, Six Nations Police again conducted a search warrant at 2882 Fourth Line and uncovered $12,000 in cocaine. Hill and Longboat were arrested and charged with drug trafficking along with Albert Lester Smoke.
In the most recent instance Six Nations Police did not disclose the amount of cocaine that was seized but called it a “large quantity”. Oxycodone, cash and drug packaging were also seized.
Longboat was held for a formal bail hearing. TRT reached out to Six Nations Police to confirm if Hill was being held in custody or if he was released. No answer was received by press time.
A third individual at the June 17 incident, Dwayne Ryan Greene, 37 of Ohsweken, is also charged with possession of cocaine.
