Brandon police have identified two men arrested in connection with an ongoing drug investigation which got $151,700 worth of meth and cocaine off the streets.

The arrests and drug seizure were the result of an investigation by the Brandon Police Service Crime Support Unit, the Brandon Police Service revealed on Wednesday.

Police stopped a vehicle on the 1400 block of First Street North on Monday evening. Two suspects were inside, and a search of the vehicle turned up 19.5 ounces of methamphetamine worth about $150,000 and 17 grams of cocaine worth an estimated $1,700.

One of the men was found with a set of brass knuckles, which is a prohibited weapon. Both men were also in breach of prior bail orders, police say.

Joseph Lindsay, 30, of Brandon has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited weapon and five counts of breach of recognizance.

Sidney Brandon, 38, of Brandon is charged with possession of cocaine and meth for the purpose of trafficking and breach of recognizance.

Both appeared in court on Tuesday and are being held in custody for later court appearances.

The allegations against the accused haven't been proven and they're presumed innocent.
