A North Bay man faces numerous drugs and weapons-related charges after border guards intercepted mail packages containing prohibited weapons.

The Canada Border Services Agency intercepted the packages, which were destined for a North Bay address, at Toronto’s International Mail Processing Centre.

When they opened the packages and found the weapons, they called the North Bay police who got a warrant and raided the home.

Police seized 114 grams of purple fentanyl and heroin mixture and 87 grams of methamphetamine worth more than $100,000.

Police say the 114 grams of fentanyl was enough to cause 55,000 lethal overdoses.

Additionally, police seized two Tasers, three switchblades, a butterfly knife and two sets of brass knuckles.

Inside the home was also $17,000 in Canadian cash which was also scooped up in the raid.

A 32-year-old is charged with four counts of possession of a prohibited weapon, three counts of importing a prohibited weapon and three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The accused also faces a charge of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
