$19k in drugs, cash seized

Police have seized thousands of dollars in drugs after a search of an Oshawa home.

Following a number of community complaints about high pedestrian traffic going in and out of a residence, members of the Drug Enforcement Unit went to a home on Tamarack Court. There, police found a teen leaving the residence with marijuana.

As a result, a search warrant was obtained and police searched the home. Inside, they found and seized cash, marijuana, hashish, magic mushrooms and Dilaudid tablets – a prescription painkiller.

In total, police say the drugs and cash have a combined street value of approximately $19,000.

A 48-year-old male of Wentworth Street has been charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of proceeds obtained by crime, possession of a Schedule II substance for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a Schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking.

A 45-year-old female and a 25-year-old male, both of Tamarack Court, as well as a 23-year-old female of Wentworth Street, are each facing charges of possession of a Schedule II substance for the purpose of trafficking.

A 17-year-old Oshawa male is facing a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
