Two people from Whitby and Scarborough are facing numerous charges after Ontario Provincial Police officers say they found a loaded firearm and cocaine in a vehicle late Friday afternoon.
The OPP said in a news release that at about 5:30 p.m., an officer was on patrol on Highway 401 in Napanee when they noticed a vehicle being driven at an unusually slow speed.
The officer pulled over the vehicle and spoke with its two occupants. The officer spotted cannabis in plain view and then did a further search of the vehicle.
