Chatham-Kent Police Service officials allege on Monday afternoon, an officer on general patrol initiated a traffic stop in the area of King Street and Lacroix Street in Chatham.

Through investigation, police learned that the driver, a 38-year-old Chatham man was suspended from driving for unpaid fines.

Upon being arrested, police found a digital scale in the immediate area of both the driver and passenger.

The driver has been charged with failing to comply with his release conditions and driving while under suspension.

He was released pending a future court date of October 3, 2018.

The passenger, a 46-year-old Chatham man, was arrested for failing to comply as he was currently bound by conditions not to possess unlawful drugs, drug paraphernalia or a cell phone.

Upon being searched, the man was also found to be in possession of a cell phone, large amount of cash along with fentanyl, crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine and hydromorphone.

He has been charged with three counts of failing to comply and four counts of possession for the purposes of trafficking.
