UPDATE: One Arrested, Four Let Go Following Search of a Barrie Home

Only One Of Five Charged With a Crime Follow Peel Street Search

One arrest in Barrie lead to another, and another, and another, and another, but in the end, only one counted.

Barrie Police say a traffic stop on Peel St. Thursday morning resulted in the arrest of the vehicle’s driver, charged with Drug Possession.

That lead to police knocking on the door of the home in which he was parked in front, where four more people, two men and two women, were taken into custody.

Officers then got a search warrant written up for the home, and following a thorough search, determined the four additional arrests were unwarranted. The quartet were released unconditionally.

A 30-year-old man has since been charged with Drug Possession and Trafficking, while officers claim to have seized a quantity of Fentanyl and pot.

The home had been under investigation for the previous few weeks.
