Suspected Drug Dealer Arrested

A Montreal man, 41, faces drug trafficking charges after he was connected to a separate investigation.

A warrant had been issued for the mans arrest, so when police spotted his vehicle on Gardiners Road Wednesday, they pulled him over and searched it.

Officers arrested the man after they found $25,000 worth of drugs including marijuana, cocaine, and crystal methamphetamine in the vehicle.

He was formally charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and 2 counts of trafficking a controlled substance.

An investigation into the accused started back on December 30, when police arrested another man on drug charges and learned who had sold him the drugs.
