Two Vancouver men are facing drug trafficking charges after VicPD seized a large number of drugs and cash during an investigation into the two individuals.

In late May, VicPD began an investigation after becoming aware the two men — who have ties to crime groups on the lower mainland — were in the Victoria area.

On May 31st, CSD officers arrested both men at a hotel in the 3200-block of Maple Street in Saanich with the assistance of Saanich Police.

CSD officers executed a search warrant on the hotel suite associated with them and located large quantities of fentanyl, methamphetamine, and cocaine consistent with a drug trafficking operation.

Officers also found $3,000 in cash, believed to be proceeds of crime.

The suspects, a 40-year-old man, and a 35-year-old Vancouver man, both from Vancouver, were released from custody pending further investigation.

Police are recommending charges related to drug trafficking.

Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654. To report what you know anonymously, call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
