More than 65 charges were laid and three people were arrested after an investigation led to the search of a property and storage locker in Sarnia, Thursday.

Sarnia Police say the vice unit launched an investigation involving suspects alleged to be trafficking cocaine, crystal methamphetamine and fentanyl from an address in the 100 block of Alfred Street. A warrant was requested to search the property as well as a storage locker on Campbell Street.

Around 4:20 p.m. Thursday, vice unit members, along with members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT), executed the warrant on Alfred Street where two people were located and taken into custody.

A search of various trailers on the property located cash, drugs and firearms (both actual and replicas).

Officers then searched the storage locker on Campbell Street where more drugs were located along with currency, a firearm, and 1000’s of rounds of ammunition.

Officers also located over $40,000 worth of stolen property (tools, bicycles, etc.).

In total, officers seized 84.46 grams of cocaine, 137.56 grams of fentanyl, 926.54 grams of crystal methamphetamine with a combined street value of $80,535.20.

Also seized was $19,845 in cash.

Three people — two 44-year-old Sarnia men and a 28-year-old Sarnia woman — were arrested, with 66 charges laid between them.

“This investigation is an obvious example of how drug trafficking ties together various other elements of crime such has the possession of stolen property along with the illegal possession of firearms,” police said in a news release. “Regarding the stolen items, members of the Criminal Investigation Branch will make attempts to return property to their rightful owners as their investigation continues.”
