Victoria Police arrest three, seize firearms and fentanyl in drug investigation


Three men were arrested after a Victoria Police drug investigation that spanned across three locations in Victoria and in Sidney.

The arrests were made by VicPD Strike Force and Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team officers on January 23rd in the 600 block of Pandora Avenue.

Two of the suspects were found to be in possession of drugs while the third was a federal parolee who has a record of convictions for violent offences.

After these arrests, officers executed search warrants at three different locations: a suite in a multi-unit residential building in the 2600-block of Graham Street, a hotel room in Victoria, and a business in Sidney. They also searched two vehicles associated with the suspects.

The suite on Graham Street yielded a firearm with ammunition and a considerable amount of fentanyl, cocaine, and cash.

Officers found more cocaine and cash in the hotel room, and drugs, cash, and evidence of a sophisticated drug production site were found at the Sidney business.

Police seized both vehicles associated with the suspects and one of them is being considered for Civil Forfeiture.

No charges have been sworn yet, and the investigation into this incident is ongoing.
