Child removed from Six Nations home after police raid

·1 min read

A child is in the care of welfare agency Ogwadeni:deo after Six Nations Police raided a house on the territory and allegedly found hard drugs “within easy proximity” of the child.

Officers executed a search warrant at a house on Sixth Line on Monday and seized quantities of cocaine, fentanyl, methadone and hydromorphone, as well as “evidence of trafficking” of controlled substances.

A 51-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman from Ohsweken were arrested and charged with drug possession.

Police say two all-terrain vehicles that had been reported stolen were also found on the property.

The child remains with Ogwadeni:deo, a welfare agency that serves Indigenous children on Six Nations and in Brantford and Brant County.
