Cocaine seized in Kimberley

Police arrest 50-year old Halpin Street resident for cocaine

Seized Oct 24 after drug investigation. 20 1-gram packages of cocaine seized

A 50-year old Kimberley man is facing several charges, including outstanding warrants from Alberta after being arrested last Wednesday, October 24, 2012.

Cpl. Chris Newel of the Kimberley RCMP reports that Kimberley Cranbrook RCMP members arrested the man and seized cocaine.

“The subject had been arrested and charged a few weeks ago when he came to the officers’ attention again,” Newel said.

After seizing the drugs, a search warrant was executed on his Halpin Street house in Kimberley, where more cocaine was seized, Newel said.

“In all 20, one-gram packages of cocaine were seized. Users often buy cocaine in 0.5-1 gram quantities, so this seller had a good supply.  In addition three cell phones were seized, something officers find common with those involved in the drug trade.”

The suspect was in court on Thursday, October 25 and remanded in custody. He is expected to appear again today.
