A Chatham-Kent police drug raid on Wednesday led to the seizure of about $36,000 in drugs and the arrest of five people. A sixth is expected to face charges as well.
Members of the Chatham-Kent Police Intelligence Section, with the assistance of the Critical Incident Response Team, executed a Controlled Drugs and Substance Act Search Warrant in Chatham as part of an ongoing drug investigation.
As a result, approximately $36,000 worth of fentanyl and methamphetamine were recovered and seized for analysis. Multiple digital scales and other drug paraphernalia were also seized.
One man from Sarnia, one man from London, two men from Chatham and a Chatham woman were arrested and charged with multiple drug offences, including possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. Another woman from Chatham will be charged at a later date.
A 22-year-old Chatham man and 43-year-old Sarnia man were held for a bail hearing. A 42-year old Chatham woman, 32 year-old London man and 59-year old Chatham man were released with conditions and a future court date.
