KINGSTON, Ont. – Two people – one from North Dundas – have been arrested in connection to a drug production and distribution ring in Eastern Ontario.

Working on intelligence gathered by several O.P.P. forces, police stopped a vehicle on Highway 401 in the Kingston-area on April 3.

Officers seized an unspecified amount of methamphetamine pills, cocaine, marijuana, Canadian cash and drug paraphernalia.

The O.P.P. only released details of the investigation today (Monday).

The male driver – a 23-year-old Kingston man and a member of the Canadian Armed Forces – and a 19-year-old woman from North Dundas were arrested.

They are each facing three counts of drug possession, three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and a single count of possession of property obtained by crime.

Police allege the two were involved in the sale and distribution of controlled substances across Eastern Ontario.

They were both released with a promise to appear in a Kingston, Ont. court on May 21.
