Search Warrant leads to Significant Drug Seizure

Significant drug seizure by the Hanover police

FROM A NOVEMBER 20 HANOVER POLICE SERVICE MEDIA RELEASE — On Thursday, November 28th, 2019, at approximately 1 p.m., members of the Hanover Police Service arrested a 36-year-old Palmerston man related to a drug trafficking investigation. The suspect was determined to be in possession of methamphetamine at the time of his arrest.  

Further investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant in the 200 block of 7th Avenue in Hanover where officers seized 608 grams, (more than half a kilogram) of methamphetamine. 

This seizure represents more than 60,000 “hits” of methamphetamine to the end user, worth an estimated street value of $60,000. Officers also seized a Mercedes-Benz automobile, over $1800 in Canadian currency and drug paraphernalia as offence related property.

The Hanover Police Service has charged 36-year-old, resident of Palmerston with the following offences:

  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purposes of Trafficking
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance 
  • Breach of Probation
  • Breach of Recognizance

This investigation and seizure is significant that will cause a disruption to the flow of methamphetamine in Grey and Bruce Counties. Methamphetamine is a highly addictive illicit drug that affects the safety, security and well-being of communities across Canada and beyond.  

The investigation is ongoing and further charges are pending. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Hanover Police Service or Crimestoppers at 1.800.222.TIPS.
