VicPD have arrested a man in connection to drug trafficking across Greater Victoria, seizing cash, drugs, and a vehicle.
At approximately 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 1st, officers stopped a vehicle in the 4700-block of Sooke Road and arrested a lone occupant whose car was searched by officers who seized large quantities of drugs and cash.
VicPD said in a media release that the man has connections to Lower Mainland organized crime groups and had been the subject of a drug-trafficking investigation since late July.
Officers subsequently executed search warrants in Saanich at a multi-unit residential building in the 900-block of Edge Place and a residence in the 4300-block of Torquay Drive.
Officers seized additional drugs and cash and have inferred it is consistent with a drug trafficking operation at each location.
In total, 350 grams of cocaine, over 260 grams of methamphetamine, nearly 100 grams of fentanyl, nearly $22,000 in cash and a 2005 BMW 330, which will be submitted for civil forfeiture, was seized.
VicPD reported that the street value of the drugs is upwards of $60,000.
The suspect, a 24-year-old Victoria man, faces several recommended drug trafficking charges.
