Three Ottawa men charged following month-long drug investigation

Ottawa police have charged three men after a month-long drug investigation uncovered marijuana, cocaine, cash and a gun.

Police obtained multiple search warrants and attended four undisclosed locations throughout the city on Wednesday and Thursday.

Bradley Crispin, Kyle Powers and Brett MacGregor-Vanrassel, all 22 years old, face charges of possession of proceeds of crime under $5000. Powers and MacGregor-Vanressel were charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, while Crispin was charged with possession of cannabis for the purpose of distribution.

All three men were released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

An investigation into the recovered gun is ongoing, police said.
