Sometimes being in the wrong place at the wrong time can make a bad situation even worse. Behaviour that seems suspicious may be enough for police to come checking on a person's activities, even if those activities were believed to have been conducted in private. Two men from southwest of Toronto were arrested under suspicion of drug trafficking
after a passer-by phoned in a report to police.
On Nov. 1, 2016, police in Windsor responded to a call about suspicious activity at about 12:30 a.m. on Charles Street. Two men were found seated in a luxury sedan parked in a driveway with the inside light on. The officers noticed baggies on the dashboard containing what they suspected to be drugs.
The two men were arrested, and the car was searched. Further investigation revealed the bags did contain drugs, including crack cocaine, morphine and methamphetamines. Additionally, one of the men was found to have outstanding warrants for his arrest. That man, a 32-year-old, now faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, two counts of possession, and his outstanding warrants for fraud, theft and failing to return to court were executed. The second man, a 51-year-old, was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession.
Both men now face a tough situation, having allegedly been found in possession of narcotics. Engaging a skilled defender may help when the case goes to trial. Any man or woman facing serious charges like drug trafficking should consider using the services of a Toronto criminal defence lawyer to help build the strongest possible case.
