Around 2pm on Friday, the Mounties stopped a vehicle near Bedell, New Brunswick and a search of the car led to the discovery of 120-thousand illegal cigarettes in the trunk.
A 20-year-old man from Fredericton has a court appearance.
Another vehicle was stopped near Waterville on Saturday just before 1pm and a search resulted in the seizure of 270-thousand illegal cigarettes.
Two men from Nova Scotia are due before a judge and the Mounties do not think the two seizures are related.
