Weekend Drug Busts Lead to Eight Arrests
Prince George, B.C. – Eight people were arrested in relation to a drug trafficking investigation over the weekend.
Cpl. Craig Douglass says it all started Friday night when Mounties stopped a car and busted two adult males for possessing cocaine on 15th Avenue near Nicholson Street.
He says it lead police to execute a search warrant at a residence in the 300 block of Moffat Street early Saturday morning.
“Inside the residence, police arrested two adult males and four adult females,” says Douglass. “During the search, officers located and seized significant quantities of cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and prescription pills, as well as drug trafficking paraphernalia and cash.”
Of the eight-people arrested, he says a 40-year-old male and a 32-year-old female have been remanded in custody and will likely appear in court later today.
