Greater Sudbury Police

SUDBURY, ONTARIO - January 25, 2020  (LSN)  In November of 2019, the Greater Sudbury Police Integrated Crime Team (I.C.T.) working in collaboration with the Ontario Provincial Police Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau (O.C.E.B.) commenced multiple investigations intending to disrupt drug trafficking operations entering and operating within the City of Greater Sudbury.

Shortly after 1:00 pm, on January 23rd 2020, police from the Greater Sudbury Police I.C.T. and Tactical Unit along with the Ontario Provincial Police O.C.E.B. and OPP North East Region Community Street Crime Unit, executed Controlled Drugs and Substances Search Warrants at six locations across Greater Sudbury, resulting in the arrest of seven individuals.

The seven individuals have been charged with the following:

  • 26-year old male for Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • 29-year old female for Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • 48-year old male for Possession of a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime
  • 44-year old female for Possession of a Schedule I Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime

The Drug Enforcement Unit of the Integrated Crime Team remains committed to working collaboratively with the OPP Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau and will continue to focus its efforts on major crime operations that pose a direct and elevated threat to the safety, security and wellness of our community. The Integrated Crime Team aims to identify and disrupt organized crime in Greater Sudbury through innovative technology, collaborative partnerships and traditional Police work resulting in the arrests of those involved, holding them accountable for their criminal activities and the seizure of illegal drugs, prohibited firearms and proceeds of crime.
