Police make cocaine trafficking arrest

Owen Sound Police Service Drug Enforcement Unit and the Grey-Bruce O.P.P. Community Street Crime Unit conducted a Cocaine trafficking investigation.

Just after 5:00 Wednesday evening, officers used a search warrant to enter an east side motel room, arrest the occupant and conduct a search. The accused was the lone occupant of the room and was arrested without incident. A subsequent search of the motel room resulted in the seizure of Cocaine that police allege was possessed for the purpose of trafficking as well as cash proceeds of crime. Other items were seized
relevant to the investigation including weigh scales, drug packaging, and multiple cellular phones. The total value of the seizure was in excess of $2,600.

The accused, a 23 year- old man of no fixed address was also arrested on an outstanding warrant issued by the O.P.P. for unrelated criminal and drug charges.
The accused is scheduled to appear in court on July 16, 2020, to answer to the charges.
