Based on information provided to police,  Hanover officers stopped a motor vehicle yesterday afternoon which resulted in charges and a search warrant.

A Hanover Police drug investigation has resulted in the arrest of a 36 year-old Palmerston man and the seizure of over half a kilo of meth with a street value of more than 60 thousand dollars.

Police Chief Chris Knoll says this seizure represents more than 60,000 hits of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of 60 thousand dollars.

Knoll calls this a significant arrest and seizure that he believes it will cause a disruption to the flow of methamphetamine in Grey and Bruce Counties.

Along with the 608 grams of methamphetamine, Knoll says officers also seized a Mercedes-Benz, over 18 hundred dollars in Canadian currency and drug paraphernalia as offence related property.

Hanover Police have charged 36 year old Christopher O’Neil of Palmerston with the following offences:
1.Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purposes of Trafficking
2.Possession of a Controlled Substance
3.Breach of Probation
4.Breach of Recognizance

Knoll says the suspect is in custody and will make an appearance today in Bail Court in Walkerton.

Knoll credits his Officers for a job well done, calling yesterday’s arrest an early door crasher event before Black Friday.

The investigation continues.
