Two men have been arrested for possession after Peel Regional Police said they were spotted “preparing illegal drugs” in the parking lot of the A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse in Brampton.
Police said they received a call at 12:49 p.m. about two men in a grey Chevrolet sedan seen preparing an illicit substance for consumption in the parking lot of the Davis Courthouse. Shortly after the call, the men fled the parking lot but were quickly pulled over nearby, according to police reports.
The two were arrested for possession of illegal drugs, according to police, the men will soon be charged once police complete the investigation.
Peel police confirmed the drug was not cannabis. Cannabis is legal to consume, but illegal to possess in a vehicle and illegal to consume while inside a vehicle. If transported, cannabis must be stored in the trunk of a car.
The men will appear at the same courthouse at a later date to answer for their charges.
