Traffic stop in Beaverton leads to police seizing cash and drugs

BROCK: A routine traffic stop by Durham police in Beaverton has resulted in the seizure of over $20,000 in cash and drugs. On Saturday, April 4th, at about 9:30 p.m., police say a North Division officer on routine patrol stopped a vehicle, believed to be driven by a suspended driver, near Maple Beach Road and Garden Gate in Beaverton. He approached the female driver and detected a strong odour of cannabis coming from inside the vehicle. He ordered the female driver and a male passenger out of the vehicle, and during the investigation, the male passenger suddenly ran away. An officer gave chase, but the male was able to escape. Inside the vehicle, officers located over $6,300 in cash, about $14,150 in fentanyl and cocaine, along with cellphones and a weigh scale. Police are seeking an arrest warrant for a 23-year-old Newmarket man. The charges against him include three counts of possessing a Schedule I Substance for the purpose of trafficking, escaping the lawful custody of a Peace Officer, and failing to attend court. Anyone with new information about this incident is asked to contact Constable Salmon of North Division at 1-888-579-1520 extension 3807.
