South Simcoe Police say the 23- and 55-year-old suspects were arrested today, and will be held for a bail hearing. “The opioid crisis in our country has reached epidemic proportions”, said South Simcoe Police Service Deputy Chief Robin McElary-Downer. “Drug dealers must be held accountable for their actions if we’re going to make a difference.
