More Charges after Purple Heroin seized

Kawartha Lakes Police have made another arrest after seizing purple heroin, cocaine and a prohibited weapon May 28th from a Lindsay home.

The seizure came after five overdoses the weekend before.

Purple Heroin, a mixture of heroin and Fentanyl, has been responsible for a spike in drug overdoses in the City of Kawartha Lakes.  

Police arrested 35-year-old Jonathan Lawrence Haight of Lindsay yesterday (Wednesday) and charged him with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of a prohibited weapon.

Forty-year-old Jennifer Steer of Lindsay was charged with similar offences last week.
