A drug bust in Chatham has led to the seizure of fentanyl in Chatham-Kent.

Police officials allege on Wednesday August 8 members of the Chatham-Kent Police Service Intelligence Unit conducted surveillance as part of an ongoing effort to remove dangerous opioids from the streets of Chatham-Kent.

“Officers observed a Chatham man travel to two locations within the city where he trafficked the dangerous drug fentanyl to two other persons,” police officials say.

“All three persons involved were arrested and charged.”

A 24-year-old Chatham man was arrested and charged with two counts of trafficking a controlled substance and one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

He was held in police custody pending a bail hearing.

A 31-year-old Wallaceburg man was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance.

He was released on a promise to appear with a future court date.

A 31-year-old Chatham woman was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance.

She was released on a promise to appear with a future court date.

In total, officers seized 3.5 grams of powdered fentanyl with an estimated street value of approximately $1,500 as well as a quantity of Canadian currency.
