Further search of the vehicle turned up nearly 106 grams of crack cocaine and almost 118 grams of meth, along with more than 17.5 grams of heroin and $1250 in cash. Police also found a gun, ammunition, a butterfly knife and brass knuckles.

40 year old Steven Brown has been charged with 15 offences, including multiple counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, unauthorized possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, among others. He remains in custody with a court date set for January 10th.
