Three people arrested in Vancouver Island drug trafficking bust


Three people were arrested late February after two homes were raided by Campbell River RCMP.

On February 28th, RCMP executed search warrants on two properties in the Campbellton neighbourhood of Campbell River.

Police said a home in the 1900-block of 15th Avenue and a home in the 1700-block of Tamarac Street were raided simultaneously after an extensive investigation indicated significant levels of illegal activity at both locations.

During the raid, police said they seized over $6,000 cash, 27 grams of fentanyl, 15 grams of methamphetamine, 14 grams of cocaine, 5 grams of crack cocaine, and 470 Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) pills.

In addition, police say they seized smaller amounts of 12 different prescription medications, scales, packaging materials, replica firearms and other evidence of drug trafficking activity.

Two 41-year-old men and a 43-year-old woman were arrested as a result of the investigation and were later released with a court date in May.

Police are encouraging people to call them if they suspect illegal activity in your neighbourhood.
