The suspect was held in custody after his arrest and will appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Ottawa on July 25, 2022.

An Ottawa resident faces numerous charges after the conclusion of a drug trafficking investigation.

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau (OCEB) began an investigation last month after receiving information about drug trafficking in the Ottawa region.

On July 22, 2022, the OPP OCEB issued three search warrants at locations in Ottawa. Police seized significant quantities of controlled substances, including more than 12 kilograms of suspected cocaine, more than 540 tablets of suspected MDMA, more than 5,000 tablets of suspected oxycodone, nearly 650 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine, more than 1,000 suspected methamphetamine tablets, 4,000 grams of suspected cutting tool, ammunition, a cocaine press and American money.

The estimated street value of the seized drugs is $500,000.

As a result, Jason Dizzell, 30, has been charged with the following offences:

  • Possession of Schedule I Controlled Substances (Cocaine) for the Purpose of Trafficking in Human Beings
  • Two counts of possession of Schedule I controlled substance (methamphetamine) for the purpose of human trafficking
