Alleged Drug Trafficker Arrested

Sarnia police seized drugs, and $10,000 in cash during a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon.

As part of an ongoing investigation, officers were conducting surveillance of a suspect and formed reasonable grounds to stop a vehicle in the area of Indian Rd. and Wellington St. at around 4:20pm.

Police say a search allegedly revealed quantities of crystal methamphetamine and cocaine.

Leslie William Shawn Hawkins, 40, is facing two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

He was scheduled for a bail hearing Thursday.
