The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) Drug and Morality Unit announced today that it has concluded a two month heroin importation investigation. Nearly one kilogram of heroin was seized as a result of a joint effort between HRPS, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
In early October 2016, police were alerted to a suspicious parcel destined for an address in Georgetown, Ontario. Subsequent investigation led to the arrest of a male suspect on November 7th 2016. Working with other law enforcement agencies, police identified and seized additional suspicious parcels containing heroin in Port Perry, Ontario. The drug was concealed in various household items, including purses and children’s toys.
Charged with three counts each of importing heroin and possession for the purpose of trafficking is Innocent Annih, 47.
