One faucet of the local drug supply has been shut off, after an RCMP road check on Highway 29 in mid-April yielded more than half a kilogram of marijuana.
As of today (May 11), Tumbler Ridge RCMP are finalizing their submission to the Crown, who will ultimately determine whether charges will be laid.
The bust was made after police received information from the general public that a person selling marijuana in Tumbler Ridge would be returning from a trip to Prince George with an unknown amount of marijuana on board their vehicle.
If the Crown proceeds, a local man will face federal charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking in a controlled substance.
If anyone has information on the sale and distribution of drugs in Tumbler Ridge, contact Cst. Douglas Erickson at the Tumbler Ridge RCMP Detachment at 250-242-5252.
