“The high volume of drug-related activity has had a negative impact on both the businesses and residents in the area,” said EPS Acting Insp. Jonathan Coughlan. “We believe the results of this investigation will be felt across this community in a positive way.”

Coughlan said information from the public helped to identify people involved in illegal drug activities in the area.

“Thank you to those who called police after witnessing suspicious events.”
