Targeted drug enforcement leads to three arrests
On February 21, 2013, as a result of a targeted Drug Enforcement Initiative by members of the Youth and Crime Prevention Services Unit, three drug arrests were made at two Guelph High Schools.

At 8:50 a.m., an 18 year old Erin male was arrested for possession of a controlled substance contrary to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. A small quantity of drugs and drug paraphernalia was seized by officers. No charge was laid as the male was dealt with by diversion methods and internally by the school.

At 10:05 a.m., two 17 year old Guelph males were arrested and charged for possession for the purpose of trafficking contrary to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, after a large quantity of marijuana was located and seized, valued at $600. Both will appear in court on April 3, 2013.


Search warrant leads to two arrests
In February, 2013, members of the Guelph Police Service's Drug Unit initiated an investigation into individuals who were believed to be producing marijuana in the city of Guelph.
