Niagara Regional Police say two people have been arrested for trafficking fentanyl in St. Catharines and were conducting operations throughout the city in an RV.
Police said street crime detectives began an investigation in September into the distribution of illegal drugs throughout the city. On Oct. 27, they executed a search warrant on an RV which they believed was being used to transport and sell illegal drugs.
The NRP said detectives found 10.5 grams of suspected fentanyl, $11,420 in Canadian currency and four computers that had been reported stolen from a break and enter earlier in the month.
A 38-year-old man and 58-year-old woman were each charged with possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.
They were released from custody on an undertaking and are scheduled to appear in court in December.
