Three people are in police custody awaiting a court appearance next week after what began as a motor vehicle accident between Fauquier and Smooth Rock Falls and later ended with a drug warrant and arrests. Ontario Provincial Police responded to the accident where one of the vehicles was stolen and occupants left the scene. The three were arrested in Cochrane and police seized approximately 100,000 dollars in cash and drugs that included cocaine, fentanyl and cannabis.
Meantime, two other people will head to court next month to face charges following a warrant on a motor vehicle and a Kapuskasing residence. Police seized cocaine, drug paraphernalia, a weapon and cash valued at about 20,000 dollars.
