Barrie police: Traffic stop leads to seizure of ‘large amount’ of drugs, money

Police say the licence plates were not registered to the car

A Toronto man faces multiple charges after a traffic stop in Barrie where police say drugs, including crack cocaine and suspected fentanyl, were seized.

On Monday, just before 1:00 a.m., Barrie police say they stopped a vehicle on Maple Avenue after learning that the licence plates were not registered to that car.

Officers say they then discovered that the driver was in possession of a large quantity of crack cocaine and suspected fentanyl. As well, they found he was also in possession of heroin, methamphetamine, prescription medication, and a large amount of Canadian currency.

The 21-year-old was charged with:

  • Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking – five counts
  • Possession of a Schedule I Substance – four counts
  • Driving While Disqualified
  • Use Plates not Authorized.

The accused has been held in custody for a bail hearing which is scheduled for later today by video, with the Ontario Court of Justice in Barrie.
