The Victoria Police Department’s analysis and intelligence section, VicPD Strike Force and the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team collaborated on an arrest and seizure of drugs, cash and a luxury vehicle on Sept. 1
The targeted anti-drug trafficking operation happened at 11:30 p.m., when strike force officers stopped a BMW 330 in the 4700-block of Sooke Road. The lone occupant was identified as an individual with connections to Lower Mainland organized crime groups and was arrested, according to a release. Police are recommending several drug trafficking charges against the 24-year-old Victoria man.
A search of the vehicle and the execution of search warrants at a multi-unit residential building in the 900-block of Edge Place, and a residence in the 4300-block of Torquay Drive, both in Saanich, turned up $22,000 in cash along with nearly 350 grams of cocaine, over 260 grams of methamphetamine and nearly 100 grams of fentanyl. The drugs have an estimated street value of over $60,000, according to VicPD.
