Victoria Police made a significant discovery last month when they arrested an alleged drug dealer.
VicPD’s Strike Force and Crime Reduction Unit received information about a man operating a “dial-a-dope” service involving several hand-to-hand drug transactions out of a residential building in the 700-block of Johnson Street.
After days of investigation and surveillance, officers executed a search warrant for the residence and two vehicles on March 21st.
During their search they discovered drugs, including heroin, fentanyl and cocaine, over $12,000 in cash, a body armour, a shotgun and ammunition.
In connection with these artifacts, officers arrested Brent Connors, a Victoria man, who is now facing seven charges including possession for the purpose of trafficking, careless use or storage of a firearm, possession of a firearm without license and/or registration, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and for possession of body armour without a permit.
The court process is ongoing at this time.
