More Drugs Off The Street

On December 13, 2018, at approximately 3:20 pm, members of the Sarnia Police Service Vice Branch were on patrol when they observed a cyclist that was known to them and was wanted on outstanding warrants with the Sarnia Police. The first warrant was for possession of a substance for the purpose of trafficking (cocaine and methamphetamine), as well as possession of a prohibited weapon (pepper spray and a taser). The second warrant was for failing to attend court and the third warrant was for failing to comply with recognizance. The warrants date back to March and April of 2018. The officers were able to set up surveillance on the suspect in the area of Collingwood Street and Exmouth Street and also requested the assistance of General Patrol Officers to assist with the arrest. At approximately 5:30 pm officers arrested the male on the power of the outstanding warrants. The accused struggled with the officers as they attempted to arrest him but he was subsequently taken into custody. Once the suspect was searched officers located approximately 25 grams of crystal methamphetamine, with a street value of $2500, along with $420 in Canadian currency. The accused, Derrick Michael Peachey, 37 years of age, of Sarnia, now faces two additional counts of failing to comply with recognizance and one count of possession of a substance for the purpose of trafficking (methamphetamine). Peachey remains in custody awaiting a bail hearing.
