On September 29th, 2016 at approximately 6:00 p.m., a member of the Sooke RCMP stopped two Sooke men in a pickup truck at the Petro-Canada gas station at Sooke Road and Otter Point Road.
The men were arrested on suspicion of cocaine trafficking and taken into custody. A search of the truck and the men arrested yielded cash, four cellular telephones, and 20 packets of cocaine packaged for street level sale.
The truck, a Chevrolet Silverado has been seized as part of the Controlled Drugs and Substances investigation.
At the time of this release the men, aged 27 and 38, both residents of Sooke, remain in custody. It is anticipated they will be released on a promise to appear in Court with conditions.
“Members of the Sooke RCMP are focused on investigating and charging those trafficking controlled drugs which bring about so much heartache with individuals and families in our community,” said S/Sgt. Jeff McArthur of the Sooke RCMP.
