Four Charged With Trafficking

 

Broadcast time: 9:50 AM

Date: February 6, 2020

The Sarnia Police Service Vice Unit has been extremely busy in 2020 attempting to control the trafficking of illegal drugs in the City of Sarnia.

Another example of their hard work occurred on January 23, 2020, where the Vice officers requested and were granted a warrant to search a residence in the 100 block of Whitmore Avenue in the City of Sarnia. As part of an ongoing investigation it was believed that occupants at the residence were trafficking cocaine.

At approximately 6:25 PM, on January 23, 2020, Vice officers made entry into the residence where four individuals were located and arrested.

A search of the residence was conducted and officers were able to locate 49.95 grams of cocaine, with an approximate street value of $5000.00, along with $1000 in currency.

The following four individuals were arrested and charged as follows:

  1. Jonas Derrick Oliver (male), 22 years of age, of Sarnia, one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking
  2. Chris McArthur (male), 21 years of age, of Corunna, one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and one count of possession of a controlled substance
  3. Jaylynn Graham (female), 19 years of age, of Sarnia, one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking
  4. Hunter Eric Balkind (male), 20 years of age, of Sarnia, one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking

All four have since been released on an undertaking with their first appearance on February 19, 2020, at 9:30 AM, at the Sarnia Lambton Court House.
