RCMP seize cash, drugs in two separate incidents involving same man

Campbell River RCMP say a recent investigation led officers to seize multiple drugs and cash in two separate instances involving the same person.

Officers say its street crime unit arrested a 27-year-old man from Richmond on Oct. 18 in a parking lot off Merecroft Road after an investigation led them to believe he was involved in drug trafficking.

They say 10 grams of fentanyl, five grams of crack, two grams of cocaine and methamphetamine and 64 dilaudid pills were seized along with $845 in cash and his car. Following his arrest, he was released with a future court date, according to police.

However, officers say more investigation found the man did not leave Campbell River after his arrest and he was continuing to sell drugs. They say a search warrant was executed on Oct. 26 at a hotel room being used by the man.
