A 2013 Ford Mustang GT and a pound of marijuana were seized by Victoria police from a home in the 400-block of Catherine St. last week.

A drug search warrant was executed on the home around 7:30 p.m. last Friday in relation to an ongoing investigation. Police seized the marijuana and a small amount of hash from inside the residence.

The Mustang was also seized, and police are pursuing options for forfeiture of the vehicle.

“This seizure should send a strong message to those who profit from crime that VicPD will exhaust every law and means to make them pay,” said Cst. Bob Isles.

“In this case the accused was obviously quite profitable selling drugs, and that unfortunately comes at a cost to someone else.”

A 50-year-old Victoria man was arrested at the home. He faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
