West Shore RCMP Major Crimes Units teamed up to execute a search warrant in Langford earlier this month, resulting in the seizure of a significant amount of drugs and multiple weapons. 

On Friday, July 8th, West Shore RCMP Crime Reduction and Drug and Organized Crime Unit worked together to conduct the search warrant on a residence in the 600-block of Fairway Avenue in Langford. 

The officers located and seized a shotgun, airsoft guns, ammunition, cash, approximately 720 single doses of suspected Fentanyl, 2490 single doses of suspected Methamphetamine, 160 single doses of suspected Cocaine and a large amount of what appeared to be pharmaceutical drugs.

A 32-year-old Langford man was arrested for drug and weapon related offences. He was released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for late October.

“The West Shore RCMP make it a priority to target those responsible for trafficking Fentanyl and illegal drugs in our communities,” said Constable Steve Marcil, with the West Shore RCMP Crime Reduction Unit. 

“There is a nexus between the drug trade and gun violence and we are always working hard to get both off the streets to keep our communities safe.”
