Police have arrested a 64-year-old Sparwood man for trafficking cocaine.
A joint drug operation between the Elk Valley and Cranbrook-Kimberley RCMP resulted in the seizure of sizeable amount of cocaine and cash after police searched a Sparwood home earlier this week.
On January 4, 2013, officers from the Elk Valley RCMP and Cranbrook RCMP drug section executed a search warrant at a home in the 6000 block of Lower Elk Valley Road, Sparwood.
As a result of the search, investigators seized over two ounces of cocaine, along with weapons, drug trafficking paraphernalia and a little more than $16,000 in cash.
A 64-year-old Sparwood man was taken into custody and will be facing various charges including possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
