 “Individuals involved in the transportation, manufacturing, distribution and sale of illicit narcotics throughout Essex County, you have our full attention. This seizure during the Canada Day long weekend was significant and for those who profit from drug trafficking and feed the addiction of others you will be relentlessly pursued and prosecuted. The public plays an important role in immediately notifying the OPP of all suspicious activity and in doing so help us in keeping our communities safe. If something doesn’t look right then chances are it isn’t, call the police.” Inspector Glenn Miller, Detachment Commander, Essex County OPP.
