Hit & Run Involving Drug Dealer and VICE Officer


A 43 year old male from Sarnia has been arrested for Trafficking Fentanyl along with a 19 year old male from Toronto who has been arrested for Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking Fentanyl. On July 2nd, 2019, at approximately 7:20pm, officers from the VICE Unit attempted to arrest two individuals in a vehicle that were suspected of conducting a drug transaction. Officers blocked the vehicle while it was stopped in a fast food drive-through lane in the 200 block of Indian Road South. The officers exited their vehicles and as they approached the occupants to advise they were under arrest, the driver accelerated forward ramming the unmarked police vehicle and pushing it approximately three meters away. The suspect vehicle then mounted a curb, drove over a boulevard and proceeded westbound at a high rate of speed on Devine Street towards Westbury Court. After coming to a dead end on Westbury, the suspects fled the vehicle resulting in a brief foot chase. Both were arrested a short distance away just prior to 7:30pm. Following the arrest, a search was conducted on both individuals and the vehicle involved resulting a seizure of 29.69 grams of powdered fentanyl and $2,356.00 in Canadian currency. D’Angelo Raveen Forde of Toronto has been charged with Dangerous Operation of Motor Vehicle, Fail to Stop at a Collision, Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking Fentanyl, Resist Arrest, Assault with a Weapon and Drive Motor Vehicle While Unlicenced under The Highway Traffic Act. Fredrick McLean Hunter of Sarnia has been charged with Trafficking Fentanyl. Both males were held for a Bail Hearing this morning.
