Sgt. Greg Willcocks said drug dealers are not welcome in the community and the detachment will continue to target people who want to profit from the sale of illegal drugs.

“Drug enforcement is a priority for the detachment and I want this to serve as a notice for people selling these harmful substances to stop what they are doing or they could face similar charges,” Willcocks said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Queen Charlotte RCMP at 250-559-4421 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
