Vehicle stops by OPP bring various drug charges

Lambton OPP report three vehicle stops, all on Sunday, Dec. 18, resulted in various drug charges being laid.

In the first, which occurred around 1:30 a.m., a vehicle was stopped on Oil Heritage Road in the area of Churchill Line. A search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of an undisclosed amount of what is believed to be marijuana. A 17-year-old Plympton-Wyoming male will appear in Sarnia court on Feb. 9, 2012 to answer to charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking as well as possession of property obtained by crime.

Two hours later, in Lambton Shores a vehicle was stopped on Thomson Line in the area of Highway 21. In that incident, police say they found undisclosed amounts of suspected marijuana, suspected Oxycodone, drug paraphernalia and cash. Police say the estimated value of the seized drugs is just over $5,000. A 48-year-old Thedford man was expected to appear in Sarnia court on Dec. 19 for a bail hearing.

At 4 a.m. the same day and in the same area, OPP noticed a vehicle acting suspiciously. Stopping the vehicle, they subsequently charged a 31-year-old Thedford woman with possession of a controlled substance and driving while under suspension. She will appear in a Sarnia Court on January 18, 2012.
