RCMP performed a drug bust in Meadowbrook on Friday night, April 26.

A 24-year-old Meadowbrook man, who police allege was selling drugs, was taken into custody after a lengthy investigation by Cranbrook and Kimberley RCMP.

Police seized eighteen one-gram baggies of cocaine, cell phones and cash from the home.

The man went before a Judicial Justice of the Peace and was released on bail.

The conditions of his release include $500 bail, not going into Kimberley, an 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew, and not possessing cell phones or weapons.

He will next appear in Cranbrook Provincial Court on June 17.

“Eighteen separate baggies is a significant amount since cocaine is typically sold in one- or half-gram quantities,” said Cpl. Chris Newel.
