A South Algonquin man is facing drug trafficking charges after being arrested in Bancroft. Bancroft OPP says it happened on Tuesday afternoon.

Not only did the 43-year-old try to evade police in a vehicle, he also got out and tried to escape on foot. When he was finally caught, he was found with about $350 worth of cocaine. He now faces a total of six charges.
