An 18-year-old Cranbrook male was arrested on December 11 at which time officers seized LSD and marijuana.
A press release from the RCMP said the Cranbrook/Kimberley Crime Reduction Unit entered into an investigation after learning a subject may have been selling drugs near the high school.
The officers were able to identify the subject and make the arrest on December 11, around 1:30 pm on Baker Street. A search located 10 hits of LSD and a small quantity of marijuana. Additional evidence to support a charge of Trafficking was obtained.
Officers were very concerned given the proximity to the high school and information that he may have been selling to students. Although LSD has been seized before in the Cranbrook area it is not that common.
