A 25-year-old man and a 27-year-old man both of Kingston have been arrested for drug possession after their nervous behaviour drew the attention of officers.
On August 10, 2017 at approximately 2:30 p.m. Kingston Police Street Crime Unit officers observed a vehicle parked at Princess Street and Chatham Street. The two male occupants appeared nervous at the sight of the officers and drove off.
The officers followed the vehicle to Railway Street where the driver accelerated to approximately 90 km/h. The officers pulled over the vehicle and observed suspected marijuana and a purple water pipe (bong) inside the vehicle.
The driver was arrested for possession of the marijuana. Upon examining a box he had on his legs, officers discovered bags containing a suspected crystal methamphetamine and cocaine. A search of the contents of the vehicle revealed additional baggies of suspected crystal and pill methamphetamine in a bag belonging to the passenger.
The passenger was arrested and both men were transported to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.
The 25-year-old was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and the 27-year-old was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
