On July 1, 2010, members of the Offender Management Unit conducted surveillance on a Bowmanville man believed to be trafficking drugs. He was on parole with the RCMP for previous charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and Production of a Controlled Substance. On July 2, 2010, police approached the male outside a residence on Lawrence Crescent in Bowmanville with a warrant for his arrest. He attempted to run from police, but officers were able to stop and arrest him, locating a quantity of hashish oil, cocaine, OxyContin and $1,615 cash on his person.
As a result of this investigation, a search warrant was executed at the accused’s residence on Strike Avenue in Bowmanville. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of over 260 grams of white powdered substance and 57 unknown tablets which have been sent to the Centre of Forensic Sciences for analysis.
Frederick PARKER, age 40 of Bowmanville is charged with: Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking x3 and Possession of Proceeds Obtained By Crime. The accused was held for a bail hearing. Further charges will be laid if the Centre of Forensic Sciences determines the unknown substance and tablets to be controlled drugs.
