Police stopped a vehicle March 12 around 11 p.m. on Lakeshore Road in Temiskaming Shores.

“As a result of further investigation, officers seized over $28,000 of suspected fentanyl, over $4,500 of suspected methamphetamine, over $2,500 of suspected cocaine and over $1,600 in Canadian currency,” the OPP said in a news release Tuesday.
