15-year-old busted with 130 grams of fentanyl and other drugs

Campbell River RCMP Street Crime Unit has made another significant arrest and drug seizure as a result of an ongoing investigation.

On Dec. 2, two people were arrested and charged with drug trafficking, a 15-year-old male from the Lower Mainland and a 27-year-old female from Black Creek.

A search warrant was executed at a local hotel and a significant amount of drugs and cash were seized.

In total, approximately 130 grams of fentanyl, 35 grams of methamphetamine, 35 grams of powder cocaine, 165 grams of crack cocaine, eight grams of MDMA, and 15 grams of marijuana.

The seizure, including a large amount of cash and a vehicle, has a street value of approximately $65,000.

“The reduction of organized crime is a priority of the RCMP. Campbell River street crime unit continues to focus on ensuring they intercept a strong establishment of a drug trade with influences from the lower mainland. These continued arrests have a waterfall effect on the crime rate in the city and ensure we maintain a safe community,” says Consts Sara Clark, media relations officer for Campbell River RCMP.

Both the male and the female are expected to appear in court later this month.
