During the month of April, 2017, members of the Sarnia Police Service Vice unit entered into an investigation where quantities of drugs were being trafficked from a residence in the 800 block of Exmouth Street in the City of Sarnia. On April 6, 2017, at approximately 7:50 pm, Vice Officers, with the assistance of the Criminal Investigation Branch, COPPS Unit, and General Patrol officers, were able to execute a search warrant at the residence in question. Upon entry five individuals were located within the residence along with drugs and drug paraphernalia. Secondary to the search officers seized: 1) Over 6 ounces of crystal methamphetamine with an approximate street value of over $17,000 2) Over 115 grams of cocaine with an approximate street value of $11,500 3) 6 grams of heroin with an approximate street value of $2,400 4) Quantities of hydromorphone and oxycondone pills with an approximate street value of $1,600 5) Over 2,300 grams of marihuana with an approximate street value $23,000 6) Officers also seized over $11,000 in cash The total value of drugs and money seized was over $68,000. During the search officers located a set of brass knuckles which are considered a prohibited weapon in Canada. Due to the evidence and drugs seized the following individuals were charged accordingly: 1) Karmjit Heber (33 years of age, male): six counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking 2) Michelle Poirier (29 years of age, female): possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a prohibited weapon 3) Gerald Spinks ( 27 years of age, male): possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a prohibited weapon 4) Jeremy Spinks ( 29 years of age, male): possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a prohibited weapon 5) Marley Wilson (29 years of age, female): possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a prohibited weapon All five were taken into custody and held for a bail hearing today. With seizures such as this, officers have to take extra precautions due to the fact that across our nation police are finding that heroin, along with other drugs, is being laced with powdered fentanyl which makes the substance even deadlier then it already is. This requires our officers to wear protective equipment such as masks, gloves, and protective suits when handling these drugs to avoid contamination.
