(West Shore RCMP)

West Shore RCMP have arrested two alleged drug dealers thanks to tips from members of the public.

Two men, aged 24 and 39 years, were arrested by RCMP during their latest drug trafficking investigation fuelled by information from civilians who reported suspicious activity at a residence in Langford.

After receiving these tips, police conducted covert surveillance on the house and suspects to gather enough evidence before making the arrest on November 22nd.

In addition to arresting two suspected drug dealers, officers seized a large amount of packaged cocaine along with $2,000 in cash.

“We also seized a conducted energy weapon as well as the vehicle that was being used to deliver drugs,” said Cst. Pollock.

Part of the credit for their successful investigation is attributed to the information provided by concerned citizens.
