GANANOQUE – An investigation between four police agencies, including Brockville police, has led the arrest of a suspected drug trafficker.

Gananoque police arrested a 41-year-old Sudbury man on Wednesday (May 18) and charged him with possession of a dangerous weapon, as well as multiple charges of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Officers seized a 14-inch knife during a traffic stop on Stone Street North early in the morning.

The knife was found under the passenger seat of the car.

Officers also found a colourful array of street drugs – 28 so-called Juju joints, 24 grams of cannabis resin and 94 edible marijuana products.

Juju joints are electronic joints that have cannabis oil and THC to allow an odourless dose of cannabis.

The total value of the drugs seized is nearly $4,300.

The suspect from Sudbury was held for a bail hearing.
