Drugs and money seized after lengthy investigation
This past weekend, after a lengthy investigation into suspected drug trafficking, the Cranbrook RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) seized a sizeable amount of drugs and money from local residents.
On June 6, RCMP conducted a traffic stop in the 500-block of Victoria Avenue in Cranbrook. Following a brief struggle, three men were taken into police custody for allegedly being in possession of a controlled substance for the purposes of trafficking.
As a result of the investigation, more information led the RCMP to a residence on Wardner-Fort Steele Road where a female was also arrested, and more items located, reported Cst. Katie Forgeron of Cranbrook RCMP.
RCMP officers seized suspected fentanyl and various forms of cocaine, along with $7,600 in cash.
The four individuals taken into police custody now face potential charges and will appear in court on a later date.
“We are very fortunate to have intercepted and seized these illicit drugs before they made it to the streets of Cranbrook,” said Cst. Forgeron. “We remain committed to continue to do our part to make Cranbrook and the surrounding community safe by targeting the sale of illicit drugs.”
