On the evening of Friday May 21, 2021, an investigation by Sooke RCMP frontline members led to the arrest of two Sooke residents for drug and weapons offences. Police seized a quantity of suspected Heroin, Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, Gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), Benzodiazepine (Benzos) and other drug trafficking related items. A number of weapons were also located and seized including a hatchet, brass knuckles, knife, defensive baton and a machete.

 

The Sooke RCMP investigation is ongoing to identify further suspects in connection to this case. Anyone with information on drug trafficking in the District of Sooke is asked to contact Sooke RCMP at 250-642-5241 or to make an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

The co-existence of both drugs and weapons is a dangerous combination that is, unfortunately, often seen in the drug trade. The Sooke RCMP remains committed to targeted investigations in support of prosecution for drug trafficking and weapons offences in our ongoing efforts to keep our communities safe.
