North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Street Crime Unit executed a search on an Alexander Street property following a drug-related investigation that spanned several months.

Officers with the Vancouver Island Integrated Emergency Response Team, Police Dog Services along with the Street Crime Unit executed the warrant in the early morning hours of September 7th. As a result, a 37-year-old man from the Hope, B.C. area was taken into custody without incident.

Officers located 13 ounces of suspected Fentanyl, 6 ounces of suspected cocaine, 34 ounces of suspected Methamphetamine and over 230 prescribed medication pills. In addition, officers seized as a 12-gauge shotgun, .45 calibre replica handgun, 2 conducted energy weapons (commonly referred to as tasers) and body armour.

Along with the obvious visible issues around drug abuse in the community, any time individuals and groups involved in the drug trade choose to move into new areas, the risk of violence increases, says Corporal Trevor March of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Street Crime Unit. Maintaining pressure against these groups to curb their activity will remain a priority of the Street Crime Unit and collectively as a detachment. Investigators will be working closely with Federal Crown Counsel to secure charges and convictions on this matter.
