Three people have been charged in connection to the opioid overdose that claimed the life of a man in Alliston.
First responders including New Tecumseth Fire and County of Simcoe Paramedics were called to a home on Victoria Street around 9:00 on the night of Thursday, January 30, to find a deceased man. He has since been identified as 45-year-old Trevor Benns of Alliston.
His death kicked off a six-month investigation that ended on Tuesday when police executed a search warrant at a Barrie home where three people were taken into custody.
Manslaughter charges laid against two people, one from Barrie, another from Mississauga. They, along with a third suspect, are also facing charges in connection to drug possession and trafficking.
