Routine Traffic Stop Leads to Drugs and Weapons Bust

A late-night traffic stop and strong attention to detail led Brockville Police to take some drugs and weapons off the street.

 The incident occurred late Thursday night (September 14th) with a routine traffic stop on Broome Road in the north end of Brockville. 

The officer noticed the passenger of the vehicle and recognized him as someone wanted on outstanding warrants by the Brockville police.

In an attempt to avoid arrest, the man provided a friend’s identification instead of his own. 

This proved unsuccessful however and he was arrested.

Officers searched the suspect and the vehicle and found a collapsible baton, machete, marijuana, pills and individual bags of unknown drugs.

In addition to the warrant the man now faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a concealed weapon.
