Brandon Police Service

On Nov. 10, Brandon Police Service officers executed a search warrant at a residence in the 600-block of Franklin Street.

Police found a number of drugs during the search, including seven grams of cocaine, 50 grams of marijuana, and a large quantity of what is believed to be benzocaine.

Benzocaine is a local anesthetic that is commonly found in cough drops or topical pain medication.

It is often used as a cutting agent to thin cocaine to increase the volume of product.

Some cash was also seized and to men, ages 22 and 25, were arrested and are scheduled to appear back in court in January on charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
