Dec. 19, 2022, Dunnville, Ont. – A push by law enforcement to quell drug trafficking in Haldimand County has taken drugs, worth more than $80,000, off the streets and led to two arrests, according to police.

In a media release, Haldimand OPP said members of the community street crimes unit – with help from their counterparts in Norfolk and the OPP’s regional emergency response team – made two arrests in recent days, seizing 169.3 grams of fentanyl and 234.4 grams of cocaine, along with a loaded gun and ammunition, drug-trafficking paraphernalia, stolen credit and bank cards, and approximately $5,200 in cash.

Police say the drugs and cash were seized on Dec. 13 when the first arrest was made and a search warrant led police to a property on Pine Street in Dunnville the next day, where the gun and ammunition were found along with a second accused.

A 32-year-old Stoney Creek man faces various drug and gun charges, along with charges of possessing stolen property over $5,000 and uttering threats.

A 29-year-old woman from Brant County faces six weapons charges and one count of possessing property obtained by crime under $5,000.

Both accused were held in police custody pending a bail hearing.

The investigation continues and police say more charges are expected.
