A 46-year-old Sarnia man is facing a slew of charges — including possession of drugs and a firearm — after police were flagged about a suspended driver on the in-car-camera system.

Lambton OPP say the incident occurred around 10:45 p.m. on May 30 when officers received a notification from their in-car-camera system of a suspended driver on Oil Heritage Road.

“During the traffic stop, officers observed infractions under the Cannabis Control Act, which resulted in a search of the vehicle,” a news release stated. “The driver was arrested, without incident, after quantities of suspected methamphetamine, ecstasy, cannabis, and psilocybin were located along with a prohibited weapon and firearm.”
