Three men were recently arrested at a Brampton bar in connection with drug trafficking offenses.
Peel police recently reported that investigators from the Major Drugs & Vice Bureau arrested the three males at All Stars Classic Bar and Grill as a result of “several community complaints.”
After the complaints were lodged, police launched an investigation into illegal activity at the aforementioned bar (located at 14 Lisa Street) in September. The bar is located in a plaza surrounded by residential buildings and has, according to police, been a hotbed for troublesome activity. In fact, police were called to investigate a homicide at the location as recently as May.
On Thursday, Dec. 15, investigators, assisted by the Street Crime Gang Unit, executed a search warrant at the bar.
31-year old Brampton man Matthew Franklin, was charged with eight counts of trafficking in cocaine, two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and proceeds of crime. Jordan Ayee, a 33-year-old male from Brampton, was also arrested and charged with trafficking in cocaine and two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. A third man, 33-year-old Brampton man Issac Handsor, was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and proceeds of crime.
All three males were held for a Bail Hearing.
