Charged with Multiple Drug Offences

On October 13, 2023, officers with Patrol Services, with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Unit, charged 28-year-old Devon Phillips with possession of a schedule I substance for the purpose of trafficking and several other offences.

Around 8:00 a.m., patrol officers observed a vehicle with stolen licence plates. Police conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle in the 400 block of Trunk Road and identified the driver as the accused. They were arrested.

A subsequent search found the accused to be in possession of approximately seven grams of suspected fentanyl, approximately three grams of suspected cocaine, approximately two grams of suspected crack cocaine, approximately four grams of suspected methamphetamine, and various drug paraphernalia. The estimated street value of the drugs seized is more than $3,800.

The accused is charged with:

  • Possession of Schedule I Substance for Purpose of Trafficking
  • Possession of Schedule I Substance x3
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime
  • Failure to Comply with Judicial Release Order

The accused is being held in custody pending a bail hearing.

  1. With the opiod crisis running out of control why are those charged with trafficking let out on bail ? They should be held pending trial. Perhaps then we can stop some premature deaths occurring from overdoses on fentanyl. Letting them out repeatedly just normalizes opiod use and adds to the problem.

  2. There is so much of this poison in the city today that it is out of control. I was seeing young people nodded out and/or vomiting, drooling so frequently and blocking traffic lanes to beg for money in the downtown area that I rarely even go near there any more. This guy will be back on the street Monday to sell more of this ‘instant death’.

    Why this policy has not changed is baffling and disturbing and will just completely kill the downtown area forever.
    For some reason an unwanted and unneeded downtown plaza supersedes absolutely everything else regardless of the continuing collateral damage.
