Vehicle stop results in arrest of 19-year-old, seizure of drugs and money

A 19-year-old local man is facing charges related to drug trafficking after a car he was riding in was pulled over by a police in a basic vehicle stop.

On Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, a patrol officer conducted a vehicle stop on Bath Road at Palace Road at approximately 11:15 p.m. When the officer spoke with the three occupants of the car, a strong odour of marijuana was detected. The officer arrested all three people.

While searching a male passenger and his backpack, officers found the following:

  • Hundreds of small, empty blue bags
  • Digital scales
  • Imodium tablets
  • A large sum of Canadian currency
  • Two large zip-lock bags of suspected marijuana
  • Several sandwich bags containing suspected cocaine

The driver of the vehicle and the other passenger were released unconditionally, according to a press release from Kingston Police. The 19-year-old was charged with two counts of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of property obtained by crime.

As a result, police seized over 255 grams of marijuana, over 30 grams of cocaine, and just over $3,000.
