By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  July 23, 2012  They call it eyes on the street; people keeping their eyes open and taking note of things that just don’t  look right.

It was just this kind of community concern that led to phone calls to the Halton Regional Police Service that resulted in Burlington uniform officers, supported by members of the Drug and Morality Unit initiating an investigation into the trafficking of cannabis marijuana from a residence in the City of Burlington.

Two men were observed outside the residence completing a drug transaction and were subsequently arrested.  A quantity of cannabis marijuana was recovered.  A short time later, another man was arrested for the offence of Trafficking in Cannabis Marijuana as he departed the residence.

A Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant was executed at the residence, resulting in the seizure of approximately 28 grams of cannabis marijuana, $275.00 dollars in Canadian currency and additional evidence of drug trafficking.
