A bail hearing was conducted for three of the individuals arrested on July 10 after a search warrant was executed in Cranbrook.

One subject was remanded in custody and will appear in court on Monday, July 20.  A second person was released on a $20,000 surety (bail) for court on Monday, July 20, a third individual from the Lower Mainland was released on the condition that he not to be in Cranbrook unless it’s for court, scheduled for Aug 17.  A fourth individual was released by police on a Promise to Appear for court on Aug 17.

All four were charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, three were charged with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and one with Flight from Police.

Seized from the persons, vehicle and hotel room was more than $4500 cash, more than 200 grams of crack cocaine, 14 grams of MDMA and 76 Fentanyl Pills.  In addition police seized a VW Jetta as offence related property.

Cpl. Chris Newel says, “The quantities and types of drugs seized are very concerning, these drugs are highly addictive and dangerous.  In a number of cases we have found persons are buying drugs that are not what they are purported to be.  This in itself is a huge concern.”

Three of the individuals were not from Cranbrook but had moved in believing there was a void in the market. Our Cranbrook/Kimberley Crime Reduction team quickly initiated an investigation and was able to successfully make an arrest and seize dangerous drugs before they hit the streets of our community.
