A London man and Woodstock woman are facing drug charges after London police say they seized more than $23,000 worth of drugs, a large majority of it the deadly opioid fentanyl, during a traffic stop early Friday.
Police said the vehicle stop took place around 2 a.m. near Oxford Street and Veterans Memorial Parkway in London’s east end.
Few details have been released, but police said they seized 50 grams of suspected fentanyl valued at $20,000, along with 23 grams of methamphetamine, valued at $2,300.
In addition, police said they seized several cell phones, drug paraphernalia, and a digital scale.
Two occupants of the vehicle, a 55-year-old London man and a 30-year-old Woodstock woman, were taken into custody without incident, police said.
Both are jointly charged with two counts of possession of a Schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking, while the London man faces an additional charge of breach of probation.
The pair had a court date on Friday.
