Police seized various drugs from a 4th Avenue residence in Fernie resulting in the arrests of four individuals on Saturday, March 28.

One ounce each of cocaine, PCP and hash along with a pound each of magic mushrooms and marijuana were found in addition to over $8000 cash and ecstasy.

According to an April 1 press release there was also evidence related to drug trafficking found.

Two of the individuals arrested are facing charges for possession for the purpose of trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. The other two individuals are being considered for charges related to possession of a controlled substance.

No names are being released at this time but the male and female perpetrators charged for trafficking were released for court at a later date.

The seizure was a combined effort with investigators from the Cranbrook/Kimberley Reduction Unit and the Elk Valley detachment to obtain a search warrant of the premises.

“We are happy to work in conjunction with other units in the East Kootenays on cases such as this,” said Elk Valley RCMP Sgt. Will Thien. “Criminals do not respect boundaries so we take any opportunity we can to work with other units and assist in investigation.”
