Mother and Son Arrested for Drug Trafficking
A Guelph mother and son were arrested Tuesday following an investigation into trafficking controlled substances.
Last summer, the Guelph Police Service received information about individuals involved in trafficking cocaine. Several suspected transactions were observed, and in late December an undercover officer met with a male outside a downtown apartment building and purchased cocaine.
Just before 2 p.m. Tuesday, members of the Guelph Police Service Break Enter Auto Theft Unit executed a search warrant at an apartment unit near Wellington Street East and Neeve Street. A female was located inside and observed to be trying to hide a baggie containing suspected crack cocaine.
Officers recovered suspected cocaine and crack cocaine with an estimated value of $1,000, as well as cash, a digital scale with drug residue and drug packaging.
A 61-year-old Guelph woman and 24-year-old Guelph man are jointly charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. The man is also charged with trafficking a controlled substance and breach of probation.
The male was held for a bail hearing Wednesday. His mother will appear in court March 8.
