Routine traffic stop leads to drug bust

A routine traffic stop by Gatineau Police Thursday led to the arrest of four men and the seizure of crack cocaine and a quantity of cash.

At 1 p.m., police stopped a vehicle and found crack cocaine, money and a .12-calibre gun inside the car, Gatineau Police Const. Isabelle Poirier said Thursday.

Following the vehicle stop, police executed a search warrant at a unit at 150 Greber Blvd., where they arrested four men, all in their 20s, at the residence.

Police seized 22.1 grams of crack cocaine valued at $2,200, 10 grams of marijuana, $1,870 in cash and the gun, and the vehicle from the traffic stop, which police allege was purchased with the proceeds of crime.

Two of the accused were expected to appear in Gatineau court Friday to answer to charges of possession, breaking the conditions of their release, obstructing police and possessing an illegal firearm.
