Social media stings local drug trafficker

Monday, June 09, 2014   by: Jeff Turl

A local drug dealer using social media to sell drugs got an "Unlike" from the North Bay Police Service this weekend.

Intending to sell marijuana over the internet, he arranged a meeting with an undercover officer Saturday, unaware his new friend was a cop.

Police met the dealer for the buy at a meeting spot in the north end of the city.

Busted!

The dealer had 470 grams of marijuana on him with a street value of $7,500.

As a result of the investigation, police charged Justin McCoy, age 30 of Massey Drive in North Bay with one count of drug trafficking.

He was held in jail for a bail hearing.
