BROCKVILLE – A little extra sleuthing by a Brockville police officer uncovered $7,500 in cash and drugs during a traffic stop on Christmas Day.
Const. Dan Hall stopped a vehicle in the south end of the city Sunday night for a condition the driver had on his licence and, after speaking with the driver, felt there may be drugs in the vehicle.
The vehicle was seized pending a search warrant and the man driving and his two female passengers were sent on their way.
The search warrant was approved and three days later, investigators combed the vehicle and found $2,500 in cash and around $5,000 worth of drugs, including cocaine.
A 43-year-old Brockville area man is facing five counts of drug trafficking and a single count of breach of a court order regarding charges the man is already facing.
A 37-year-old female passenger was charged with two counts of drug possession.
The second woman in the vehicle won’t be charged, police said.
