A street sweep across Muskoka has led to multiple arrests and charges.
From Tuesday to Thursday, police across Muskoka conducted a street sweep with a focus on outstanding warrants and compliance checks of parties who are under release conditions.
Out of 22 warrants executed by the OPP, eight led to arrests.
As a result of the compliance checks, one individual has been arrested and charged with impaired driving as well as possession of fentanyl.
Meanwhile, four others were arrested on charges that warrants had not been issued for.
On Tuesday, the Muskoka Community Street Crime Unit observed a driver – who had been seen fleeing a RIDE check in Huntsville back in mid-October.
