Cops collar cache of drugs and more cash than most of us get to spend in a year. Drug business must be good.

BURLINGTON, ON.  Ouch – that hurt.

Whenever there is an opportunity to tell, or better yet, show the public what the police are doing to protect us – there is a photo-op.  Shown is what the police were able to seize during a recent drug bust.  If you look through pat drug/crime stories you can probably trace which lower level dealer was nabbed, squeezed a bit and gave up the name of the supplier.  Tough business to have any friends in.

On November 21st 2013, members of The Integrated Drug, Gun & Gang Unit executed two Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrants in Burlington yesterday and scooped up $105,000 in cash and the following:

3.75 ounces of cocaine,

500 OxyContin tablets,

2 grams of crystal methamphetamine,

7 grams of marihuana, and

0.5 grams powder MDMA (ecstasy).

Andrew HATTON (33 years of age) was charged with:

1. Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking (cocaine)

2. Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking (oxycodone)

3. Possession of a controlled substance (marihuana)

4. Possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine)

5. Possession of proceeds of crime

 Mr. Hatton was held in custody pending a bail hearing.

  • Hahaha

    Thank you very much to the police for the excellent work. These scumbag adult dealers need to be set loose and into the hands of parents like myself, who have under age children to raise and protect.

    I have an even better solution to the drug dealing problems in this city. The solution is based on a face to face scenario between parent and dealer, to ensure for a more fair and equitable distribution of justice. A rational approach such as this would also save time and money for the courts.

    Bring it. Anytime. Any place.
