The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - NEWS -

Three men are fac­ing drug charges af­ter Brockville po­lice and OPP of­fi­cers car­ried out a drug bust in Brockville’s north end Thurs­day evening. The Brockville po­lice drug unit and emer­gency re­sponse team and the Grenville County On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice crime unit ex­e­cuted a drug war­rant at an apart­ment in the com­plex at 12 Cartier Court shortly be­fore 7 p.m., Brockville po­lice re­ported Fri­day. Once in­side the apart­ment, in­ves­ti­ga­tors found crys­tal metham­phetamine, co­caine, crack co­caine, mar­i­juana, hashish, hy­drocodone and an un­known quan­tity of pre­scrip­tion pills with an es­ti­mated street value of over $10 000, said po­lice. Of­fi­cers also seized more than $2,500 in cash, the pro­ceeds from the sale of il­licit drugs, po­lice added. Their search of the apart­ment also turned up coun­ter­feit Cana­dian and US cur­rency which had been re­cently cir­cu­lat­ing in the Brockville area, and a replica hand­gun in a mil­i­tary-style hol­ster. Three adult men, whom po­lice did not iden­tify, are fac­ing “nu­mer­ous” charges un­der the Con­trolled Drugs and Sub­stances Act and Crim­i­nal Code as a re­sult of the war­rant, city po­lice re­ported. One of the ac­cused, a 35-year-old man from the Smiths Falls area, was also to ap­pear in Brockville court later Fri­day for a bail hear­ing, po­lice added. He had pre­vi­ously been charged by the Smiths Falls Po­lice Ser­vice on Oct. 2 and was re­leased on con­di­tions that he no­tify the town po­lice of any change of ad­dress and to re­main within his res­i­dence ex­cept for med­i­cal emer­gen­cies, work or school. He will face ad­di­tional charges of breach­ing his re­lease con­di­tions. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion was con­tin­u­ing Fri­day.
