VERNON - Police in Vernon made three arrests last month in connection with a pair of drug trafficking operations in the city.

On Feb. 12 a 37-year-old Vernon man was pulled over and arrested on 35 Street, RCMP say.

Police searched the vehicle and found methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine, all packaged for sale on the street, according to a media release.

The man faces three charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, along with some motor vehicle offences. He was released from custody and will appear in court at a later date.

About a week later, on Feb. 25, RCMP say they shut down another dial-a-dope operation with the arrest of a man and a woman in a vehicle on 39 Avenue.

In this case, the officers found heroin packaged for sale during a search of the vehicle.

A 25-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man, both from Vernon, were released from custody and will be in court at a later date to face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

RCMP have not said if the two drug busts are related and won’t release the names of the people they arrested.
