Cocaine nets Trail man criminal charges
A Trail man is facing possession for the purpose after trafficking charges after intelligence resources led police to arrest the man outside a local pub during the wee hours of Saturday morning.
“On Feb. 1, at 12:49 a.m., members of the Trail Crime Reduction Unit arrested a 31-year-old male for Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act,” said RCMP Cpl. Darryl Orr of the Crime Reduction Unit. “The male was arrested by Crime Reduction Unit members shortly after leaving a downtown Trail business. Approximately four grams of Cocaine and $1,200 in cash were seized during the suspect’s arrest.”
Orr said the man was released from custody and will appear in Rossland court in April 2014.
“The Trail and Castlegar Crime Reduction Units continue to aggressively pursue street level drug dealers. Anyone with any information about drug trafficking is urged to call the police or anonymously at Crime Stoppers.”
