(VicPD)

A Victoria man has been arrested with fentanyl, weapons, and cash after VicPD investigated him for allegedly trafficking drugs.

In early October, VicPD began an investigation into a suspected drug trafficker operating out of a suite in a multi-unit residential building in the 900-block of Johnson Street.

The suspect was arrested on Friday, October 15th in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue after officers utilized a loud distraction device due to concerns he was in possession of weapons.

Upon his arrest, officers found a can of bear spray in his possession.

Police executed a search warrant on the man’s residence where they seized quantities of fentanyl and weapons—including a cattle prod, a baton, taser, and replica firearm—as well as $8,000 in cash.

The suspect was taken to custody but has since been released from custody pending further investigation into drug and weapons offences.

Anyone with information on this investigation is asked to call VicPD at (250) 995-7654
