A search of those in the parking lot and their vehicle uncovered a loaded handgun, a magazine containing 15 bullets, 15 loose rounds of ammunition, 91 grams of cocaine, 143 grams of fentanyl, five grams of methamphetamines, 131 dilaudid tablets, 25 percocets, 40 hydromorphone tablets and $2,000, according to police.

Four suspects — Gregory Perdomo-Perezi, 28, of Bolton; Marissa Gurica, 34, of Georgina; Will Martin, 31, of no fixed address; and a 17-year-old Toronto youth — face a variety of drug and firearms charges.

“Investigators would like to warn residents of the presence of purple, red and rainbow-coloured fentanyl being distributed in Georgina,” added police. “Residents are reminded that if fentanyl is mistaken for another less-potent opioid like morphine, heroin or oxycodone, overdoses can easily occur. Depending on how it’s administered, the user may not notice the difference until it’s too late.”
