Public Health Warning Leads to Drug Seizure and Arrest

A Guelph woman has been arrested for trafficking controlled substances, just days after the local health unit warned of potentially strong substances circulating in the community.

On February 8, Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health issued the health alert after seven substance-related poisonings in one day.

In response to the alert, the Guelph Police Service Drug Enforcement Unit began an investigation into fentanyl trafficking in our community and a suspect was identified.


Early Tuesday, officers with the Drug Enforcement Unit and Tactics and Rescue Unit executed a warrant at a home in a downtown neighbourhood. A 37-year-old female located inside the residence was arrested and charged with several drug trafficking-related offences. She was held for a bail hearing Wednesday.

Quantities of suspected fentanyl, crystal methamphetamine, crack cocaine and Hydromorphone with a total value of almost $9,000 were seized, along with $535 in cash, a collapsable baton and a folding knife.

“We are committed to reducing the harmful impacts this criminal activity has on our citizens,” said Police Chief Gord Cobey. “Our members will continue in their efforts to target those seeking to profit from the trafficking of these dangerous substances in our community.”
