Four people are facing charges after police seized drugs and weapons Friday in Orillia.

A few months ago, police began an investigation into people who were allegedly trafficking drugs “to a specific address on Barrie Road and Dunlop Street,” Orillia OPP said in a news release.

On Friday, police seized about three grams of methamphetamine, nine-and-a-half grams of cocaine, 48 PGB capsules, brass knuckles, a flick knife, a digital scale, a police radio scanner, cutting agents, and $1,500 in Canadian currency.

Sherrylynn Hart, 54, of Orillia, has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking (cocaine).

Michael Hart-Payne, 29, of Orillia, has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking (cocaine) and possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

Tyler Johnston, 18, of Orillia, has been charged with possession of a Schedule 1 substance (methamphetamine) and failure to comply with a probation order.

Donald Kingsbury, 60, of Orillia, has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking (cocaine).

All four accused were released from custody and have August court dates in Orillia.
