Kimberley RCMP have made another arrest for cocaine trafficking.

Another Kimberley resident has been arrested for suspicion of cocaine tracking, says Kimberley RCMP Cpl. Chris Newel.

The cocaine was seized in Marysville after officers gained sufficient evidence that a male and female were involved in the trafficking of drugs.

“A search warrant was obtained for the male’s residence which was executed right after the arrest,” Newel said. “At total of 6 grams of what was held out to be cocaine, in two separate packages, was seized.”

The 38 year old male is currently in custody facing charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking.

In addition he has several outstanding arrest warrants from BC and Saskatchewan and is being held for court.  The female has been released and may be charged at a later date, Newel said.

This follows an arrest last Wednesday, October 24 of a 58-year old Halpin Street resident for suspicion of cocaine trafficking. Newel says that there isn’t a special drug task force operating right now, it’s just good police work.

“I would not call it special. We are always following up and conducting drug investigations.  With good police work the investigations come together and we are able to make the arrests and obtain search warrants. In the last few weeks we’ve had good success.
