Warrants lead to seizure of cocaine, cash and trafficking items

 

On February 15, Cranbrook RCMP executed two search warrants under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act.   Two residences were searched, one on Anderson Crescent and the other on 8th Ave South in Cranbrook.

As a result police located and seized close to 13 grams of cocaine, a quantity of cash and items associated with trafficking.   One male was arrested and will appear in Cranbrook Court in April.  He is facing charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking.

The investigations are continuing and there could be further arrests.

Cocaine is typically sold in ½ and 1 gram quantities, so this represents several sales and would not be considered personal use.
