Cranbrook RCMP arrest local resident for trafficking cocaine—again
It seems that a local Cranbrook resident just doesn’t get the message when it comes to selling cocaine. On July 18, 33-year-old Dylan Jan Deimling was stopped by police and a search of his vehicle located an ounce of cocaine, packaged for sale as well as $3,000 cash. Deimling was arrested and then released from custody after signing a Promise to Appear in Cranbrook Provincial Court on October 12. Deimling also agreed to several conditions that he would abide; one of which was not to possess cell phones.
On October 11, Deimling was again stopped by police who suspected that he was carrying cocaine. Deimling was searched and police located a half-ounce of cocaine, packaged and ready for street-level sales as well as another ounce of cocaine in his shorts and two cell phones. Deimling was also carrying a BB gun in the waist band of his pants and an open-bladed knife.
Deimling, who already has a prior conviction for Possession of a Controlled Substance, will be facing several new charges including two charges of Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking, Trafficking in Cocaine, Fail to comply with a Condition of Undertaking and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.
Police are requesting that Deimling be held in custody pending his trial.
