MH man facing multiple charges

A 27-year-old Minden Hills man is facing multiple charges after the Haliburton Highlands OPP responded to a call for a drug overdose last week.

Police were called to a property along County Road 121 just past 3 a.m. on July 15.
“When officers attended the scene a male party was located in possession of a significant amount of drugs and stolen property,” reads a release from the police.

A search warrant was subsequently executed on a trailer, where police “seized a quantity of controlled substances, including fentanyl and methamphetamine, with a street value of approximately $14,000, and a loaded firearm.”
The man is facing 12 charges, including unauthorized possession of a firearm; breaching firearm regulations; occupying a motor vehicle knowing there was a firearm; possession of drugs; unauthorized possession of a weapon; two counts of possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose; two counts or possessing ammunition contrary to a probation order; possessing property obtained by crime; and theft over $5,000.

The man was remanded into custody, and had his first court appearance July 16.
