Kingston police charged a local 58-year-old man and a 34-year-old Belleville woman with possession for the purpose of trafficking fentanyl on Thursday.
A statement released by police said that on Feb. 25, members of the Kingston Police Drug Enforcement Unit executed two Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) search warrants, and as a result located purple fentanyl and Canadian currency that added up to close to $40,000.
Police say there was also evidence of drug trafficking.
The search warrants were executed during the day at a west end Kingston hotel and at a residence located in Kingston’s north-end.
The man and woman were charged jointly with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
