Four Leamington residents are facing a plethora of charges after allegedly selling narcotics at a convenience store.
Officers with OPP and RCMP executed search warrants at Erie Convenience, located at 91 Erie St. S., in Leamington on Wednesday. Two other warrants were issued at homes on Emerson Street and Sturgeon Meadows.
Four people were arrested, while police seized a quantity of fentanyl, oxycotin, cash, contraband tobacco, a 2000 Chrysler Intrepid and a 2005 GMC Envoy.
“Through the ongoing collaborative partnerships we share in law enforcement our capacity to identify and respond appropriately to ongoing criminal activity should not be underestimated by those engaged in criminal enterprise crimes,” stated Insp. Glenn Miller.
OPP have charged 50-year-old Jimy Al Ubeidi, 48-year-old Sattar Al Shibawi and 56-year-old Fahat Robiah with possession of a scheduled drug for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, unlawfully possessing unstamped tobacco, and unlawfully purchasing unstamped tobacco.
Manon Lalonde, 30, is also charged with possession of a scheduled drug for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by a crime.
The accused will appear before the court at a future date.
