Oakville & Georgetown men arrested – Cocaine & Ketamine

On July 8th 2015, the Halton Regional Police 1 District Strategic Support Team concluded an investigation by arresting a Georgetown man and an Oakville man. The Strategic Support Team later executed a search warrant on Sarah Cline Drive, Oakville. As a result of this seizure, the Strategic Support Team seized approximately 42 grams of cocaine, approximately 450 grams of ketamine, and $1,740 cash.

According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Ketamine is a fast-acting anesthetic and painkiller used primarily in veterinary surgery. It is also used to a lesser extent in human medicine. Ketamine can produce vivid dreams and a feeling that the mind is separated from the body. This effect, called “dissociation,” is also produced by the related drug PCP. Ketamine’s mind-altering effects make it prone to abuse. When ketamine is used in human medicine, it is often given with sedative drugs to offset these effects.
