Drug, weapons charges laid following north end raid by Barrie Police

47-year-old man arrested and charged

A man is facing weapons and trafficking charges after a raid in north Barrie.

On Thursday, the Barrie Police Service executed a search warrant at a home on Pepler Place, near Cundles Road and Kozlov Street. During a search of the home, police say cocaine and fentanyl were seized along with a conducted energy weapon and a quantity of Canadian currency. A 47-year-old man was taken into custody.

“I commend our officers for their expedient effort to rid this criminal activity that compromises the safety and security of our community,” said Deputy Chief Wyllie Allan. “The Barrie Police Service takes the enforcement pillar of the Simcoe Muskoka Opioid Strategy very seriously and recognizes that no street drugs are safe, that they should all be considered potentially poisonous and that they must be removed from our streets.”
