Drug bust close to St. Catharines playground
Police have busted 3 people for selling drugs not far from a St. Catharines playground.
Cops had been keeping an eye on a woman allegedly dealing from her place on Niagara St since early last month. Wednesday, the house & car were searched.
Police found a small amount of crack cocaine, hash & pain killers.
Tenille Lepp, Christopher Lewis & Darrin Mathieson are facing drug charges.
Niagara Regional Police say this is the 2nd time in as many weeks they've stopped someone from dealing drugs close to where kids play. While a police release doesn't name the play place, Niagara St runs alongside Pearson Park. There are also a number of elementary schools along Niagara St in the north end of the city.
