$70K in Cocaine Seized in Guelph

A Guelph man faces drug trafficking charges after Guelph Police Service officers seized more than $70,000 (Guelph Police has provided a correction to the value) worth of cocaine Tuesday.

In October, members of the Guelph Police Service Drug Enforcement Unit began an investigation into a male believed to be involved in trafficking controlled substances. Surveillance was conducted at his residence and a Woodlawn Road West business and warrants were obtained to search both locations and his vehicles.

A 37-year-old Guelph man is charged with two counts of possessing controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking. He was held for a bail hearing Wednesday.
