Drug Bust In Wroxeter

(HOWICK, ON) – A North Perth man is facing several charges following a traffic stop that took place in Wroxeter last week. 

On Thursday, July 28, 2022, at approximately 11:26 a.m. a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer initiated a traffic stop of a sport utility vehicle that was travelling northbound on Howick Street in Wroxeter. 

The driver failed to have his driver’s licence on him and he then proceeded to identify himself with a false name. The investigating officer questioned the name provided and through some further investigation the officer was able to determine driver’s correct name and date of birth.

The driver was also found to be driving with a suspended driver’s licence. Upon a search incident to arrest the driver was found to be in possession of suspected fentanyl as well as a switchblade and unmarked cigarettes.

Darryl BOUDREAU, 59 years of age from North Perth has been charged with: Obstruct Peace Officer, Possession of a Schedule I Substance – Fentanyl, Failure to Comply with Undertaking, Driving While Under Suspension and Possess Unmarked Cigarettes.

The accused has since been released from custody with a court date scheduled for August 15, 2022, at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
