BROCKVILLE – Morphine, cocaine and motorcycle club wear was seized during a drug bust on William Street on Wednesday, city and provincial police revealed today.

Eight people were arrested as Brockville and Ottawa police officers carried out a drug raid on a home on William Street. The O.P.P. Biker Enforcement Unit was also involved.

They searched apartments three and four in the multi-unit complex at 26 William Street.

Brockville Police Service Staff Sgt. Andrew Harvie told Brockville Newswatch earlier this week that two of those individuals have been held for bail. They are 36-year-old Justin Rogers and 51-year-old Steven Osborne.

The names of the other six accused have not been released.

All are facing drug trafficking charges.

“Rogers was a former member of the Red Devils Motorcycle Club. Paraphernalia from the Red Devils Motorcycle Club and the Crooked Clan Motorcycle Club were located in the apartments,” police said.

The search happened shortly after 6 p.m. at a home on the northwest corner of the intersection at James Street West.

The O.P.P. Biker Enforcement Unit says it seized cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, hydromorphone, morphine, cash, a hydraulic cocaine press, outlaw motorcycle gang clothing and a prohibited weapon.
