SUDBURY -- Timmins police say they arrested two people from southern Ontario and seized nearly $80,000 in fentanyl and crystal meth during a traffic stop Tuesday.
An investigation by the drug enforcement unit of Timmins Police Service led to large drug bust late Tuesday afternoon on Highway 101 near Bob's Lake, east of Porcupine.
Officers seized 58.1 grams of purple fentanyl, 22.7 grams of blue fentanyl, 9.1 grams of grey fentanyl, 43.3 grams of crystal methamphetamine, and over $5,000 in cash, police said in a news release.
As a result, two 28-year-olds from Mississauga have been arrested and charged with drug trafficking and having property obtained by crime. One of the accused is also charged with failing to comply with a release order.
The two accused were held in custody pending a bail hearing.
