On November 2, 2015, the Halton Regional Police Drug, Gun & Gang Unit concluded an investigation regarding the importation of heroin into Canada, more specifically, into Halton.

In October 2015, the Canada Border Services Agency intercepted a package into the country containing heroin which originated from Uganda. The package was destined for a private mailbox at a retail shipping store in the Town of Oakville. The Canada Border Services Agency notified the Halton Police who began monitoring the package.

On November 2, 2015, two Brampton men, Jordan JONES and Rogan THOMAS, attended the Oakville retail shipping store and retrieved the package. Both men were arrested and a search warrant was executed at Jordan JONES’ residence resulting in the seizure of electronic devices.

Accused:

Rohan THOMAS, 19 years from Brampton has been charged with:

  1. Importing heroin
  2. Trafficking heroin
  3. Uttering a forged document
  4. Use a counterfeit mark

Jordan JONES, 27 years from Brampton has been charged with:

  1. Importing heroin
  2. Possession for the purpose of trafficking heroin

Both men were held in custody pending a bail hearing schedule for November 3, 2015, at the Milton courthouse.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Drug, Gun and Gang Unit at 905 825-4747 ext 8732 or anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.com or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes).

    Oakville News should remember the presumption of innocence under the “Charter” – hence, the use of the word “allegedly” is important:

    11. Any person charged with an offence has the right

    (a) to be informed without unreasonable delay of the specific offence;

    (b) to be tried within a reasonable time;

    (c) not to be compelled to be a witness in proceedings against that person in respect of the offence;

    (d) to be presumed innocent until proven guilty according to law in a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal;
