On the 19th day of December, 2014, the Cranbrook RCMP arrested an adult male on outstanding warrants for Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking. These warrants stemmed from charges out of Dawson Creek from 2010.

This male arrived in Cranbrook earlier in 2014 and assumed an alias name. This male quickly became involved in the criminal element of Cranbrook.

Subsequent to his arrest last Friday, the Cranbrook RCMP executed a warrant to search his residence in the Amy Woodland Elementary School area. Inside the residence, police recovered a loaded shotgun, a significant amount of cocaine and a large amount of money.

Travis Howard LOSIER, 25 years of age, appeared in Cranbrook Provincial Court on the outstanding warrants as well as new Cranbrook charges of Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purpose and Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking. LOSIER has been remanded in custody and is scheduled to make his next court appearance January 12, 2014.

Police would like to thank the community for their cooperation with this investigation. Police are also seeking assistance in regards to an incident that occurred on December 14, 2014. On that date, a residence in the Southview area sustained gunshots to the exterior of the residence and to a vehicle parked at that location, by unknown suspects.
