A trio of Toronto-area males – two adults and a youth – face drug trafficking charges following a traffic stop in Guelph on Thursday afternoon.

Police spotted a silver BMW cutting off other vehicles in the area of Wellington Street West and Wyndham Street South, a news release explains. During the stop, officers detected a “strong smell of cannabis” coming from inside the vehicle.

A subsequent search led to the discovery of an open package of cannabis in the glovebox and a grinder contaminated with cannabis residue in the cupholder, as well as 85 Percocet tablets in the console and more than $1,700 cash inside a lunch bag.

Two 22-year-old men, one from Toronto and another from Mississauga, as well as a 17-year-old from Mississauga, are charged with possessing controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking.

The BMW, which police say was rented through a ride-sharing app, was towed by police.
