A man was arrested by transit police recently after a pair of officers saw him in the middle of a drug deal just a few feet away from a kids’ play area.
Officers were at the New Westminster SkyTrain Station on Sept. 30 when they saw a man conducting a drug deal, and intervened.
The officers seized a number of packets appearing to contain an unconfirmed white substance and the suspect was arrested on a promise to appear in court, said Sgt. Clint Hampton of Metro Vancouver Transit Police.
It’s believed the drugs found by officers were a mix of methamphetamine, heroin and fentanyl, Hampton said.
He said the transit police service is suggesting charges for trafficking a controlled substance.
Two of our vigilant @TransitPolice officers #Busted an alleged drug dealer last week. The troubling part – he was witnessed making a drug exchange right beside a group of toddlers and only feet away from a kids play area. #ShameOnYou pic.twitter.com/UuaX9ZHkAk
