Well known drug dealer arrested again

Robert Stiglitz, 26, of Campbell River has a history of drug dealing and is now facing two new charges

A prolific drug dealer is back behind bars.

Robert Stiglitz, 26, was taken into custody Monday after being formally charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

According to RCMP, officers searched a Campbell River hotel room on Feb. 22, and found evidence of cocaine and heroin trafficking.

No one was in the room at the time, but RCMP recommended charges against Stiglitz which were finally sworn on Monday in Campbell River provincial court.

Stiglitz was taken into custody and agreed to remain behind bars until  his May 13 bail hearing.

During the summer of 2008, Stiglitz was arrested two different times for selling crack cocaine and powdered cocaine.

He received an 11-month jail sentence and told the judge he was sorry and was planning to work in Alberta. But in June 2009, he was arrested again for selling cocaine to an undercover police officer on consecutive days. Again, he received an 11-month jail sentence. Stiglitz’ DNA is already in the national police registry and he has a lifetime ban from owning or possessing any weapons.
