Hamilton man arrested after allegedly delivering marijuana to Guelph clients
Guelph police have arrested a man and a woman after watching an alleged drug deal in the city's downtown core.

Guelph police say two people are facing charges after officers watched an alleged drug deal go down on Monday afternoon.

The 20 year old Kitchener male and 40 year old of Montreal woman were both arrested at 12:57 p.m..  A search of the vehicle was conducted and police seized the plastic bag of cocaine observed previously, as well as an additional clear bag of cocaine which was located between the front seats.  Total amount of cocaine seized was 3.62 grams.  The male’s backpack was also searched and contained 8.84 grams of crystal meth, and 7 tablets of oxycodone. 

The purported transaction happened on Surrey Street in the city’s downtown core just before 1 p.m.

Police said officers saw a man allegedly pull a clear plastic bag of cocaine from his backpack before getting into a waiting vehicle.

They were then followed by police to a parking lot on Edinburgh Street South where a 20-year-old Kitchener man and a 40-year-old Montreal woman were arrested.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. on Sept. 10, police were doing a routine patrol in the area of Edinburgh Road and Inkerman Street when they spotted a vehicle parked on the wrong side of the road with its trunk open.

Police said they found the clear bag of cocaine, along with another that was found between the front seats, which amounted to over three grams.

Police also alleged the man was wearing a $3,500 watch that was reported stolen in Waterloo on Aug. 22.

A 28-year-old Hamilton man has been charged with possession for the purpose of distributing cannabis. He was held pending a bail hearing.
