Drugs, weapon seized from Queen Street residence

Search warrant executed Wednesday afternoon

Police seized drugs, a weapon and stolen property while executing a search warrant Wednesday afternoon at a Queen Street residence in Midland.

The police search turned up a wooden baseball bat loaded with nails, as well as cocaine, fentanyl, clonazepam, stolen property and drug paraphernalia.

Last week, MidlandToday reported that a number of residents were living in fear due to a suspected drug house.

Police said the warrant for the Queen Street raid was executed as part of an ongoing investigation led by members of the Ontario Provincial Police Community Street Crime Unit attached to the Southern Georgian Bay, Orillia, and Collingwood and The Blue Mountains detachments.

“... A number of individuals have been identified who will be subject to further investigation and reported on in an updated media release,” police said.
