On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, officers from the Barrie Police Service Community Safety and Well Being Unit – High Harm Team, with the assistance of the Barrie Police Tactical Support Unit, executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrant at a Donald Street motel room.
This search warrant resulted in the seizure of a significant quantity of fentanyl, crack cocaine and heroin that were all destined for our streets, along with Canadian currency, and various weapons.
Initially, two females and a male who were located in the room were arrested, but a short time later, the two females were released unconditionally. The male, a 53-year-old from Barrie, is facing a slew of drug possession, drug trafficking and possession of prohibited weapons charges. He was held in custody and is scheduled to appear today by video link for a bail hearing.
