Cocaine Dreams Crashed!

Peterborough-Durham-GTA Trafficking Investigation Nets Over $300,000 ARV!


Jan.28, 2012, eight people were charged and drugs, cash, weapons and offense related property valued over $300,000 were seized in co-ordinated investigation by five police units. A drug trafficking network believed to be responsible for the distribution of cocaine to a network of drug traffickers extending into the Peterborough area had its activities curtailed following surveillance which identified the main players and residences involved in the drug trafficking network.

K-9 Nabs Fleeing Man


Once again, the K-9 Unit played a role in bringing in one of the key players in an investigation. During the execution of the search warrant on Bethune Street, Joseph Hobbins attempted to flee from the side door of the residence and was pursued by the K-9 unit, which successfully caught up to Hobbins and arrested him.

Drug Inventory Seized


The total amount of controlled drugs and substances seized are as follows:

• 1,363.4 grams or 3 lbs of cocaine. Cocaine currently sells on the streets of Peterborough for $100 per gram. Therefore the estimated street value of cocaine seized is more than $130,000
• Six Fentanyl patches total ARV $300
• 33.9 grams marihuana total ARV $340
• $50 in Methadone
• Large amount of steroids
• 780 Oxycontin 80mg pills total ARV $46,800
