- DALSON CHEN

Quantities of methamphet­amine, fentanyl, and cocaine were found by Windsor police at a home on Askin Avenue as part of a drug investigat­ion on Wednesday.

Also seized from the residence were a digital scale, a large amount of cash, and a BB gun that closely resembles a semi-automatic pistol.

The seizures were the result of an operation by the drugs and guns unit (DIGS) that began in March.

A suspect, a vehicle, and an address were identified by officers through the course of the investigat­ion.

After search warrants were obtained, Windsor police moved to arrest the adult male suspect on Wednesday night.

He was located around 9:15 p.m. driving in the involved vehicle in the 3100 block of Howard Avenue.

The suspect was taken into custody without trouble and the vehicle was seized as evidence.

About 30 minutes later, officers attended the residence in the 3600 block of Askin Avenue to execute the search warrant.

More than two kilograms of methamphet­amine (2,087.7 grams in total) were found.

Also in the home were 112.9 grams of fentanyl, 30.8 grams of cocaine, and the black BB gun.

A search of the involved vehicle also turned up a quantity of illicit drugs.

Brian Gosse, 53, of Windsor, faces four counts of possession of controlled substances for the purpose of traffickin­g.

Windsor police remind the public that traffickin­g of illicit drugs is a serious crime that impacts the community, and police are committed to holding all offenders responsibl­e for their actions.
