Thousands of dollars in damage

Mindless “tagging” caused thousands of dollars in damage in Black Creek over the weekend

Mindless “tagging” caused thousands of dollars in damage in Black Creek over the weekend.

At least four vehicles and six buildings were spray painted overnight on Saturday-Sunday, and police are looking for the culprit.

“The language used was offensive to the point that some people would not drive their vehicles in public after the damage,” said Const. Nicole Hall of the Comox Valley RCMP.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-338-1321 or  Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

 

Woman busted with cocaine

A 36-year-old woman is facing charges related to a dial-a-dope operation.

According to RCMP, on June 3, around 5 p.m., members of the Street Crimes Unit were conducting an investigation into the activities of a female drug trafficker.

Officers called the alleged trafficker and arranged for the delivery of a quantity of cocaine. Once the female arrived at the agreed location she was arrested and subsequently searched.

Officers seized several grams of cocaine and an undisclosed sum of cash.

Christina Ingrid of Campbell River is now facing drug trafficking charges and will appear in Campbell River provincial court at a later date.
