For the second time in less than four years, an Oshawa man is being charged with trying to import heroin through the mail.

A 36-year-old was arrested by Durham police on Thursday after police suspected he picked up a drug package from a Canada Post outlet.

Investigators said in a news release Friday that the Drug Enforcement Unit became aware of a package that was going to be delivered to an Oshawa address with 208 grams of heroin inside of it -- a value of $62,000.

They identified a male suspect and put him under investigation.

On January 14, the package was picked up from a local Canada Post outlet. The suspect then drove north of the outlet and pulled his car to the side of the road when he reached Simcoe Street North and Aberdeen Street. At that point, officers attempted to pull him over, police said, but instead of coming to a stop, the suspect accellerated, attempted to flee, and struck an unmarked police cruiser in the process.

The suspect continued, failing to stop at a stop sign and as a result, crashed into another vehicle travelling north on Simcoe Street.

After a brief clash with police, officers managed to arrest the man and seized the package.

The suspect was previously arrested in October 2012 and charged with importing heroin.

This time, the suspect was charged with possession of heroin for the purpose of trafficking, importing heroin, dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and failing to comply with recognizance.

Kingsley Ugbaja was held in custody for a bail hearing.
