TRENTON, Ont. - A member of the Canadian Armed Forces has been charged with drug offences in the Trenton, Ont., area.
Provincial police say a suspect was arrested on Tuesday after a brief investigation into the alleged sale of controlled substances in the City of Quinte West.
Two search warrants were executed in Kingston and Trenton and it's alleged that cocaine and $2,880 in cash were seized.
The investigation involved Ontario Provincial Police, the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, Kingston police and the RCMP.
Michael Spears, 27, of Kingston, is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.
He has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 18.
Forces spokeswoman Capt. Melina Archambault said Wednesday that Spears is a communication and information systems specialist with the joint signal regiment in Kingston and remains on the job.
She added he has the rank of corporal and has been with the forces since November 2009.
Archambault said an internal administrative review will be conducted to determine what action may be taken.
