Break and enter leads to arrest, suspected fentanyl recovered
Two people were arrested following an alleged break and enter while police also recovered suspected pink and purple fentanyl.
The Oxford OPP said they received a report of a break and enter Sunday morning on Bidwell Street in Tillsonburg.
The police arrested two suspects when they arrived at the scene. Two people had allegedly broke into camping trailer on the property, police said.
A 23-year-old Straffordville woman was charged with breaking and entering and possession of a Schedule II substance for the purpose of trafficking. A 31-year-old Tillsonburg man was also charged with breaking and entering.
The two suspects are scheduled to appear at the Ontario court of justice at a later date in Woodstock.
“The Oxford County OPP would like to thank the Good Samaritan that immediately contacted 911 to report a crime in progress,” Insp. Tony Hymers, the Oxford OPP detachment commander, said. “As a result of their quick-thinking actions, officers were able to take two people into custody without incident.”
