Newmarket man facing weapons, trafficking charges following B&E in Bradford

Victims knew who broke in

A late-April break-and-enter has led to drug trafficking charges laid.

The South Simcoe Police Service was advised of a break-and-enter to a Bradford home on April 30. The victim says they left their home for about half an hour a few days prior and returned to discover someone had broken in and stolen cash and electronics. The victims provided the name of a person they believed was behind the theft.

Following a police investigation into the incident, officers executed a search warrant in Newmarket on May 19. A loaded handgun, a pellet gun, a bulletproof vest, about 50 grams of cocaine, and several dozen pills were seized.
