On 30 March, 2011 at approximately 10:30 a.m., Belleville Police uniformed members, ERT and Canine executed 2 CDSA search warrants (one on a residence and the other at a business) in the 300 block of Front Street.
These warrants were granted as a result of uniformed officers collectively approaching and responding to an identified trend of street level drug activity in the downtown core. Belleville Police Service will continue to work with neighbourhoods to resolve concerns as it moves forward in the implementation of Zone Policing.
The search warrants resulted in the arrest of a 57 year old, Belleville man and the seizure of approximately $1400.00 of cocaine and a quantity of cash.
Wayne Thompson has been charged with one count of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and one count of Possession of Proceeds of Crime. Thompson will appear in Provincial court on 19 May, 2011.
