Brockville – Two Brockville men are facing charges as a result of a traffic stop yesterday morning at 10:30 a.m. on Buell Street.
Patrol officers spotted the vehicle being operated by a 40-year-old Brockville man for a traffic violation on Buell Street. A check confirmed the man was prohibited from driving for a previous Criminal Code conviction and as a result was placed under arrest for prohibited driving. While searching the man after the arrest a quantity of counterfeit money and drugs, believed to be crystal methamphetamines, was located.

During the stop, it was learned that his 35-year-old male passenger was currently at large on a recognizance of bail with several conditions including not being in a motor vehicle he is not the registered owner of. As a result, he was also arrested for breaching his recognizance and conveyed to the Brockville Police headquarters where he was held for a bail hearing.
