Police arrested two people and seized a quantity of alleged methamphetamine after a bust on Tuesday on Bruce Avenue and Dougall Avenue.

Officers were led to the bust while they were investigating two males they say were actively dealing cocaine and methamphetamine in the city of Windsor.

Police executed a warrant at a residence in the 1500 block of Bruce Avenue and arrested 42-year-old Jackie Burkoski. He’s charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

Police also arrested another man at a separate location in the area of Dougall Avenue and Tecumseh Road.

Kevin Jovetic, 41, is charged with 4 counts of possession of methamphetamine for trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime and breach of probation.

Officers recovered 6.6 grams of methamphetamine, 27.3 grams of marijuana and $895.

Police are using this incident to remind the public of the dangers of using any drugs but in particular methamphetamine.

Police say meth is made using numerous chemicals and items including garden fertilizer, cat litter, propane, paint thinners, and batteries.

The drug is extremely addictive and can quickly lead to the destruction of the user’s life. Police say it leads to serious health conditions including memory loss, heart and brain damage, a quick progression of psychotic behaviour, and hallucinations or delusions such as the sensation of insects crawling under the skin.

If you or someone you know has a drug addiction please refer to The Windsor Addiction Assessment and Outpatient Service at 519-257-5220 for assistance.
