Officers found a small amount of crystal meth inside his shoe and a small quantity of Fentanyl in the vehicle as well.

A search warrant was then executed at the man’s home in Oshawa where police found more drugs.

In total, police seized more than $14,800 in crystal meth, $2,300 in cocaine and $975 in Fentanyl.

Mile Lavcanski, 36, has been charged with five counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and was held for a bail hearing.
