Two southern Ontario residents are facing numerous charges after a tip led to a drug raid at a Garson residence on Friday.

Greater Sudbury Police reported this morning that they received a tip that day that a southern Ontario resident was breaching his release conditions and was in Sudbury selling illegal drugs.

After obtaining a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant, GSPS said detectives from the Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) headed to a home Brodie Street in Garson where information said the man was staying.

Around 9:30 p.m. Friday night, DEU officers as well as Emergency Response Unit (ERU) officers executed the warrant and took two men into custody, including the man from southern Ontario, GSPS reported.

"Upon searching the residence, officers located over $38,000 worth of cocaine and fentanyl, as well as scales, packaging materials, cutting agents and multiple cell phones," GSPS said in the release. "Officers also seized $1,565 in cash."

A 34-year-old man and a 38-year-old man, both from southern Ontario, were arrested and charged with:

Possession of a Schedule I substance of the purpose of trafficking (x2);

Possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, and;

Breach of release order (for the 38-year-old).

Both men were held in custody, before answering to the charges April 10.

Both men were also issued a provincial offence notice for failing to comply ($880.) under the Reopening Ontario Act for breaching the current COVID-19 Orders.
