An investigation into drug activity by Sooke RCMP led to the arrest of one man and the seizure of drugs, cash and weaponry last week.
The RCMP say they witnessed a drug deal take place on June 15 near Evergreen Mall on Sooke Road.
Once the deal was completed, police moved in and arrested one man for possession of a controlled substance.
A search of the suspect uncovered a substantial amount of drugs including cocaine, ketamine, MDMA, prescription pills and over $6,000 in cash.
The man was also carrying a large machete and pepper spray. All of the items were seized.
Sooke RCMP say this is the second significant seizure they have made in a month. The previous bust, on May 21, saw two Sooke residents arrested for drug and weapons offences.
Those arrests also led to the seizure of heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine, gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), and benzodiazepine, along with weapons such as brass knuckles, a baton, and a machete.
Anyone with information on drug trafficking in Sooke is asked to call the Sooke RCMP or, if you wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
