Wednesday, March 25, 2015 @ 3:53 AM

Prince Rupert, BC – A three-month joint law enforcement investigation has resulted in charges of cocaine trafficking against a Prince Rupert man…

The investigation involved officers from the RCMP’s Federal Serious and Organized Crime (FSOC) units in both Prince Rupert and Prince George, along with officers from the Prince Rupert Detachment.

Police arrested 33-year-old Philip Nguyen and say they seized a vehicle, several thousand dollars cash, and six ounces of cocaine in connection with the operation.

RCMP FSOC Inspector Brian Gateley says, “The effective coordination of Federal and Detachment level resources has resulted in a disruption to the flow of drugs reaching the streets from our northern BC communities.”

Nguyen has been released from custody, but is set to appear in court in early May.
