RCMP continues to fight against drugs in Cranbrook

Man and woman arrested for drug possession in separate incidents in Cranbrook last week

RCMP have arrested another two subjects in two separate drug-related incidents in Cranbrook.

Two subjects were arrested in two different incidents in Cranbrook last week and are now facing drug charges.

On November 20, police entered into a drug investigation that led to the arrest of a 50-year-old Moyie resident.

Upon arrest police seized two grams of cocaine. The woman is facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

On November 21, a search warrant was obtained after police gathered sufficient evidence that a male was involved in the drug trade.

Police obtained the warrant to enter a motel room on the strip where they arrested a 50-year-old man.

Police seized a small quantity of drugs along with drug paraphenalia.

Charges of possession of a controlled substance are being recommended.

These incidents come on the back of an RCMP search at a Cranbrook motel on November 7.

Two men in their early 20s were arrested on drug charges after the search, which turned up an extensive weapons cache as well as cocaine, methamphetamine and drug paraphenalia.

Police continue to work towards making our community safer.

If you have any information on these or any other types of crime, please contact the Cranbrook RCMP detachment at 250-489-3471 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
