Police in Regional Division # 10 cracked down on a known ‘drug block’ located at Rainbow City, MacKenzie Linden on Tuesday night. Several persons of interest were searched during the drug and gun eradication exercise.
A 54-year-old mechanic of Amelia’s Ward, Linden, was searched and one transparent plastic bag that contained several whitish/creamish substances suspected to be cocaine was found. After being informed of the offence and cautioned, the suspect admitted that he sells cocaine.
He was subsequently arrested and escorted to the MacKenzie Police Station with the suspected cocaine which, when weighed in his presence, amounted to four grams. The suspected drug was placed in a self-sealing evidence bag, marked and lodged.
The man is in custody pending charges. Investigations are going.
