An investigation into potential drug trafficking in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory has resulted in the arrest of one man and the seizure of approximately 250 grams of suspected cocaine.

Tyendinaga Mohawk Police announced the arrest on Wednesday, Apr. 12, 2023, noting that a search warrant was executed at a residence on Bayshore Road at approximately 8 p.m. the night before. The investigation was a joint operation, Tyendinaga Chief of Police Jason Brant explained, and also involved the Lennox and Addington (L&A) County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), as well as the Prince Edward County OPP Detachment.

Upon searching the residence, police seized “approximately 1/4 kilogram of a Schedule 1 substance suspected to be cocaine, and the resident of the address was arrested without incident,” Brant said in response to Kingstonist inquiries.

As a result, 40-year-old David Joseph Bolton was charged with possession of a Schedule 1 substance for the purpose of trafficking. Bolton is currently being held in custody pending a bail hearing on Thursday, Apr. 13, 2023.

“The Tyendinaga Police express thanks to our OPP partners for their assistance,” Brant said in a post on social media.

As the investigation remains ongoing, Chief Brant was unable to share further details on this case.
