Investigation into suspicious vehicle in Parksville leads to drug bust


An investigation into a suspicious vehicle in Parksville led Oceanside RCMP to a drug bust last week.

On the afternoon of January 29th, officers responded to the report of a suspicious vehicle and found the driver allegedly passed out in the driver’s seat.

Officers began their investigation, and after uncovering drugs in the vehicle, the driver was arrested. 

The search of the vehicle turned up suspected crack cocaine and crystal methamphetamine, weigh scales and cash.

“The packaging and quantity of the seized suspected drugs suggests they were intended for sale,” said Sergeant Shane Worth of the Oceanside RCMP. 

“This is another reminder that reporting suspicious occurrences to police is helpful in keeping our community safe and the Oceanside RCMP thanks citizens for continuing to report these types of occurrences.”

The driver was released from custody and charges are pending.
