A Brampton man who was charged in January with drug offences has been charged again by Thunder Bay police with separate drug trafficking activity.

Rusheed Romeo Perry, 25, of Brampton is one of nine suspects arrested by members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Intelligence Unit and OPP’s Organized Crime Bureau after they executed three search warrants earlier this month.

As a result of the warrants, police seized cocaine, fentanyl, over $50,000 in cash, and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking.

Just before 10:55 p.m. on March 17, police entered a motel room in Thunder Bay where one of the two suspects attempted to prevent them from coming through the doorway.

Both suspects were arrested without further incident and a search led to the seizure of cocaine, worth an estimated street value of nearly $78,000, cash and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking.

Another search warrant executed just before 11:10 p.m. resulted in police taking three people into custody inside at a residence in the Northern Ontario city.

During this raid, police found what was suspected to be crack cocaine, cocaine, cash and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking. The estimated street value of the drugs seized is worth more than $17,000.

A third search warrant the same night at 11:15 p.m. at another residence resulted in the arrest of four suspects.

There police seized suspected crack cocaine, fentanyl, cash and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking. The estimated street value of the drugs seized totals nearly $29,000.   

Perry was charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and failure to comply with a judicial release order.

Perry’s judicial release order is connected to previous drug trafficking charges laid two months ago by Thunder Bay Police following the search of a home.

Back in January, officers entered a home and observed an apparent trail of suspected cocaine leading to a male accused, who police say was attempting to dispose of the narcotics. The estimated street value of the drugs seized totals over $27,000.

Perry was charged then with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and obstructing police. He appeared in court on January 20 to answer to these charges.

Perry wasn’t the only Peel resident to be charged in the most recent search warrants.

Also charged in the March drug busts are Romario Demetriex Taffe, 26, of Brampton, with the possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and the possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

Shuntwon Clarke, 26, of Brampton is charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, obstructing peace officer, failure to comply with judicial release order and breach of probation.

Ramel Herbert Rodney, 26, of Brampton is charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and resisting a peace officer.

Denton Simpson, 23, of Mississauga, is charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime over $5000.

All accused appeared in court on Thursday, March 18 and were remanded into custody with future appearance dates.
