Four people have been charged with drug trafficking offences as Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) executed a search warrant last week at two locations in Collingwood.

In May and June, police say they initiated a drug trafficking investigation regarding two people staying in an RV at numerous locations and residences in the Collingwood area. On July 5, OPP executed a search warrant on the RV and a residence on Leslie Street.

"Police located three people inside the RV, who were arrested without incident. A search of the RV yielded over 60 grams of Fentanyl worth an estimated $9,500 and other evidence related to drug trafficking," according to an OPP news release. "These arrests occurred in the wake of numerous complaints of fentanyl overdoses where OPP and other emergency services needed to administer naloxone to save those individuals."

Three people from Collingwood and a person from Sturgeon Falls have been charged. Two of the accused were also charged with property obtained by crime under $5,000.
