Large North Guelph Meth Lab Busted

Three males face a long list of charges after Guelph Police Service officers discovered a methamphetamine lab just north of the city.

In April, 2023, the Guelph Police Service Drug Unit received information about males involved in trafficking controlled substances. During the investigation, a third male was observed attending a warehouse north of Guelph on an almost daily basis.

The early morning of June 1, police executed search warrants at the warehouse property as well as a residence in Guelph. Large amounts of methamphetamine, cocaine, GHB, Oxycodone and other controlled substances were seized. The estimated value of the substances is $292,000.

Also seized was approximately $250,000 in suspected stolen property including tools, motorcycles and ATVs as well as a $100,000 skid steer which has been returned to its owner. Officers also located two rifles and several real and replica firearms.

Three Guelph males – aged 50, 44 and 28 – face a long list of drug and weapons charges. They have all appeared in court and been detained pending their next appearances later this month.

Last week’s arrests mark the third significant drug seizure by Guelph Police Service officers in less than two months. During the three seizures officers have recovered more than $1.4 million in controlled substances, almost $300,000 in cash, six real and several replica firearms and more than $300,000 in other offence-related property.

“These investigations and the resulting arrests and seizures represent a significant disruption of the illicit drug supply in the City of Guelph,” said Steve Gill, deputy chief of policing operations. “The removal of these substances and firearms from our streets helps in maintaining community safety and protects citizens from potential harm.”
