Alleged drug trafficker taken off Vernon streets

VERNON - An alleged dial-a-dope trafficker was arrested Wednesday in Vernon following an RCMP targeted investigation.

Cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine were seized and a 21-year-old man was taken into custody by Vernon Targeted Policing members. He was later released on a promise to appear in court. Three charges of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking have been recommended, according to Mounties.

"These types of investigations will continue in our communities as we deal with the ongoing drug issues we face, and the crimes associated with it," RCMP Sgt. Dave Evans said in a press release.
