Drugs - Drug Investigation Leads to Arrests in St. Catharines

Posted on Thursday February 07, 2019
  
In January of 2019, the 1 District Street Crime Unit of the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) began an investigation into the trafficking of illicit drugs within the city of St Catharines.  As a result, a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrant was obtained for a multi-unit residence on Niagara Street, between Church Street and North Street in St Catharines. 
 
On February 6, 2019, the CDSA search warrant was executed with the assistance of the NRPS Emergency Task Unit given that there was information of a possible weapon.  10 persons were found inside the residence.
 
As a result of the search, detectives seized over $2200 in illicit drugs, and $5800 cash.  Three persons are being held for bail.  Seven other persons arrested at the scene were released unconditionally.
