Four people from Timmins have been arrested and charged for drug production and trafficking.
The Timmins Police Service searched three homes on Balsam Street, Rovie Street and Powerline Avenue on Thursday. Communications Coordinator Marc Depatie says police found $15,653 of drugs as well as manufacturing equipment. Officers seized marijuana plants and bud, shatter (a high concentrated form of marijuana), meth tablets and THC laced gummies.
Depatie says it’s not the amount of drugs that concerns the police, but what kind of drugs it was. He says the fact that they were involved in the manufacturing of a drug with THC in such high concentration is a serious concern to police.
All four people involved have separate court dates between today and March 28th.
Depatie says police are currently looking for another suspect involved in this case.
