A man and a woman are now facing multiple charges stemming from a lengthy investigation examining the alleged illicit drug activities of the pair.
On May 3rd, 2016 Members of the Cranbrook GD, CRU, Cranbrook GIS and PDS executed a search warrant at a Meadowbrook residence resulting in the seizure of multiple ounces of crack Cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA as well as evidence of MDMA or ecstasy pill manufacturing and weapons.
A male and female were arrested, appeared before a Judicial Justice and were released with conditions. Both face charges of Trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, obstruction and drug manufacturing. Investigators also seized the traffickers’ vehicle, which will undergo process under the BC civil forfeiture Act as offence related property.
The seizures are the result of a months long investigation into the traffickers activities by the Cranbrook CRU which was greatly assisted by a traffic stop conducted by a vigilant Cranbrook General Duty Member.
The results were a combined effort of both the Cranbrook and Kimberley RCMP units that continues to demonstrate that drug trafficking knows no geographical boundaries, stated Cpl Chris Newel Kimberley RCMP.
Of concern was the presence of Methamphetamine being peddled within the two towns by the traffickers which, as experienced by other communities can be devastating. Any persons with information regarding drug trafficking are urged to contact Crimetoppers at 1-8000-222-8477.
