Police said the meetings involved drug trafficking.

Officers approached two men after they were seen leaving the address, and after a brief pursuit on foot that saw the pair run in opposite directions, they were arrested.

During a search, police said they found cocaine and fentanyl as well as Percocet pills and over $1,000 cash.

A Mississauga man and a man from Brampton, both 26 years old, were charged and held for bail hearings on Friday.
