A woman from Oshawa has been charged with a battery of offences after police say they found large quantities of drugs during a traffic stop in Cobourg.

According to Cobourg Police Service, the woman was driving down University Avenue, a few blocks north of King Street, around 9:30 p.m. on October 16. The officers recognized the woman as having been recently released with “strict” court-ordered conditions

The officers pulled her over to check her compliance with those court orders, police say. Part of the woman’s release conditions was the requirement she be at home by a curfew. As she was not at home by the curfew, the officers arrested her for breaching her conditions.

During the arrest and a search of the car, police say they found $25,000 worth of drugs including;

  • 2.5 grams of suspected heroin
  • 25.82 grams of suspected purple fentanyl
  • 102.23 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine, and
  • 0.42 grams of suspected crack cocaine

Cassidy Robinson, 25 of Oshawa, was charged with;

  • failure to comply with a release order
  • four counts of possession with intent to traffick, one for each drug discovered and
  • possession of property obtained by crime

Robinson remained in custody until a bail hearing.
