In the early morning hours of the 30th of July 2012, plain clothes officers with the Sault Ste. Marie Police Services Patrol division observed the accused drive up to a residence on Huron Street. Officers observed an alleged hand to hand drug deal between the driver of the vehicle (Mr. RAMKAY), and a second individual. A short time later Mr. RAMKAY’S vehicle was stopped by officers, small amounts of marijuana, as well as cash believed to be related to the drug transaction were located in the possession of the accused. As a result, Mr. RAMKAY was arrested and charged with trafficking a controlled substance.
In addition, the cash and Mr. RAMKAY’S vehicle, a 1998 BMW, were seized by police as offence related property. This investigation is continuing, however, the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service is seeking an order to have both the cash and Mr. RAMKKAY’S vehicle forfeited to the Crown.
Persons who profit from illegal activity will face the consequences of having their property and assets seized if they form part of the offence.
A safe, drug free community is one of our top priorities. Our officers will continue to work with our community partners and prosecutors in similar cases to help take away the tools and the profits from criminals.
