Prince George, B.C. – Two people have been arrested for allegedly selling drugs in Prince George.

Prince George RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass says on Wednesday this week officers arrested a man in an industrial area along First Avenue after seizing over 17 grams of fentanyl packaged into over 140 individual doses.

He says police also found a small amount of meth, pot as well as four knives. As a result, forty-five-year-old Prince George resident Darryl Bryan Tom faces a drug trafficking charge. Douglass says he’s scheduled to make his first court appearance today.

Douglass says the arrest coincides with two opioid overdoses this week.

On Tuesday, police responded to a suspected fentanyl overdose at the same location on First Avenue where Tom was arrested.  The 38-year-old man was treated and released.

Then on late Wednesday afternoon he says police responded to another suspected opioid overdose near the corner of Third Avenue and George Street. A 46-year-old woman was administered Naloxone and survived.

Yesterday morning Douglass says a female was arrested near the corner of Fourth Avenue and Dominion Street after she was found with “significant” amounts of heroin, meth and coke. She also had a large amount of cash on her.

She’s been released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
