Man facing gun, drug charges posts $80,000 bail
A man facing several gun and drug-trafficking charges has been permitted bail.
Cameron Bagheri walked out of the Oshawa courthouse on Nov. 26 after posting $80,000 bail.
The 19-year-old was arrested Oct. 30 in connection to a weapons and drugs investigation, which, police say, netted cocaine, fentanyl, crystal meth and prescription pills.
The probe, which was led by Peterborough police, resulted in 11 arrests after 13 residential search warrants and seven search warrants on motor vehicles. Four warrants were executed in the City of Peterborough, four in Kawartha Lakes and one in Bridgenorth. The others were carried out in Scarborough and the Belleville area.
Police say the warrants were a result of a nine-week, co-ordinated joint-forces project that targeted individuals allegedly trafficking in drugs and weapons from Peterborough, the City of Kawartha Lakes, the Greater Toronto Area and Deseronto.
More than $35,000 in Canadian currency was seized, along with six handguns and three rifles with ammunition, and a Taser, police said.
Bagheri was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking fentanyl, possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, possession for the purpose of trafficking oxycodone, proceeds of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and six firearm charges.
