‘Project Fresh’ leads to multiple drug charges

(Chatham-Kent Police Service)

Chatham-Kent Police Service officials allege: Over the past six months, members of our Intelligence Section have been gathering information regarding criminal activity here in Chatham-Kent.

As a result, officers arrested seven people in connection with Project ‘Fresh’ on Tuesday.

“(Tuesday’s) arrests highlight the results of ‘Project Fresh’ that specifically targeted criminal activity in our community,” stated Inspector Trevor Crane in a media release.

“‘Project Fresh’ was a long and tedious undertaking initiated and coordinated by our Intelligence Section over the past several months.”

Crane added while the number of arrests and charges are very significant, it is a continuing battle to combat the flow of drugs and related property crimes that result from their sales and use.

“We have no illusions that this problem is isolated to our community, and we will continue to employ as many investigative avenues as possible to target illicit drugs and property crimes, and those involved in those activities within our community,” Crane stated.

“While we are very pleased with yesterday’s arrests, we remain vigilant in our efforts to combat illicit drugs and property crimes in Chatham-Kent.”
