An Etobicoke man has been charged with fentanyl possession and trafficking cocaine, opioids and other prescription drugs in Caledon after a bust last week.

Back in August, the Caledon OPP say investigators began looking into alleged drug trafficking in the community of Bolton. Police say the investigation led officers to search a residence in Caledon last Wednesday (Oct. 5), and a 28-year-old from Etobicoke has been charged.

An OPP spokesperson said there was also a warrant issued for a second residence in the Toronto area.

Shakkoi Phillips-Grandison, 28, of Etobicoke has been charged with:

  • Possession of a Schedule I Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking – Fentanyl
  • Possession of a Schedule I Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking – Percocet
  • Possession of a Schedule I Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking – Cocaine
  • Traffick in a Schedule I substance – Fentanyl
  • Possession of Proceeds of property obtained by crime under $5000

The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on Dec. 12.
