Three men were arrested Wednesday following a drug investigation in Peterborough that included the seizure of drugs and a loaded handgun.

Peterborough police said they were investigating the sale of drugs which led to the arrest of the trio at a George Street residence. A subsequent search uncovered a loaded nine-millimetre handgun with a high-capacity magazine, 80 grams of “suspected” cocaine, 31 oxycocet tablets and a large quantity of cash.

“It’s a fairly big seizure but it’s the tip of the iceberg,” said Insp. Larry Charmley. “We have so much information coming in about drug dealing in our city. We’re not different than any other community. But certainly we are getting a lot of influence from the GTA.”

Arrested were:

  • James Alexander Park, 28, of Durham Region. He’s facing several drug and gun-related charges, possession of proceeds of crime under $5,000 and three counts of failure to comply with a recognizance.
  • Zachary David Graham-Singh, 25, of Durham Region. His charges include two counts of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime under $5,000.
  • James Moncur, 46, of Peterborough. His charges include possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds of crime under $5,000 and failing to comply with a probation order.
