Teen Male Arrested, Suspected Illegal Drugs Seized

An 18-year-old man was arrested and a quantity of suspected illegal drugs recovered by police over the weekend.

Officers conducting traffic checks near the junction of Union Street and Parsons Road, Pembroke, shortly after 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, 14th October 2023, signalled a motorcycle rider to stop.

The rider ignored the officers and rode in a dangerous manner along Parsons Road before entering the City of Hamilton.

Officers followed the subject, who made his way to Bulls Head car park, where he abandoned the bike and was eventually arrested, as he attempted to leave the area on foot.

The subject was searched and found to be in possession of several small twists containing suspected cannabis and cannabis resin, a scale, a quantity of cash, as well as a knife.

A subsequent search of the man’s residence resulted in the recovery of a quantity of suspected controlled drugs, drug equipment and cash.

The suspect is expected to appear before the courts in due course.

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
