Brantford police say they’ve seized over $66,000 worth of drugs after monitoring a drug deal and later executing a search warrant.
Tuesday night, police say they observed two people conduct a drug deal in the area of Murray and Darling streets.
Not long after, 42-year-old Clinton Cartwright was arrested. He was found with cocaine, analgesic pills and over $920 in cash.
A few hours later, police executed a search warrant at a home on Kennedy Street, where they found 28 grams of cocaine, as well as hashish and pills.
A 43-year-old man, John Daoust, was found in the residence. Police say he was in possession of nearly six kilograms of marijuana and subsequently arrested.
Both Cartwright and Daoust were charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. Cartwright is also facing charges of possession of a controlled substance.
