TIMMINS POLICE MAKE DRUG SEIZURE STEMMING FROM TRAFFIC STOP

The Timmins Police Service has charged two persons with a number of Criminal Code, Highway Traffic Act, and Drug Possession offences stemming from an incident that occurred during the evening hours of Wednesday, May 27th on Algonquin Blvd in Timmins.

While completing patrols of the downtown core, a Timmins Police Service officer noted that a vehicle was being driven in a somewhat suspicious fashion.

A police check verified that the Quebec licence plate on the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt passenger vehicle was in fact stolen.

A traffic stop was initiated by the officer on Algonquin Blvd, where the driver proceeded to provide a false name to the police.

The female passenger exited the vehicle and began to leave but was halted by the police.

As the event and subsequent investigative measures undertaken by the officer unfolded, a quantity of cocaine and methamphetamine tablets were located by the Timmins Police.

Responding Timmins Police officers contained the immediate area for public safety reasons.

As a result of the incident, Michel CORRIVEAU, 39, of Val Gagne and Melissa DOIRE, 33 of Timmins, have been charged jointly with:

– 2 count each of Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking contrary to the Controlled Drug and Substances Act

–  2 counts each of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada

DOIRE has been released from police custody on the strength of an Undertaking requiring that she attend at Provincial Court in Timmins on August 25th to answer to the charges laid against her.
