The vehicle failed to stop, and a pursuit began.

While the suspect vehicle was northbound on Deseronto Road, Napanee officers and the vehicle was stopped.

Both parties were wanted for numerous offences stemming from a 12 week drug investigation. The original investigation commenced in September 2016 and resulted in numerous arrests, as well as the seizure of methamphetamine, prescription drugs and synthetic fentanyl.

Arrested in the Napanee Region regarding the Windsor warrants was Christopher Royal, a 31 year old male, and Jody Bouma, a 38 year old female, both of Windsor.

Royal faces Windsor charges of trafficking in a controlled substance-crystal methamphetamine, trafficking in a controlled substance-fentanyl, trafficking in a controlled substance-mdma, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle two counts of driving while disqualified times, and 12 counts of breach recognizance times.
