The effort put in by our local members to ensure the safety of the community, and remove drug traffickers makes me very proud
The man has since been released from police custody and the investigation continues. A future court date is anticipated, but charge recommendations have not yet been forwarded to the BC Prosecution service for review.
Anyone with information about, or who suspects, illegal drug activity in their neighbourhood is asked to contact their local police.
