RCMP raid Walfred Road drug house again

The West Shore RCMP street crime unit busted two Langford residents for drug trafficking last Friday.

The West Shore RCMP street crime unit busted two Langford residents for drug trafficking last Friday.

Police went into a residence on Walfred Road at 10 p.m. on Feb. 3, and arrested a 40-year-old man and a 38-year-old female. Both are known to police.

Police seized more than 600 grams of marijuana, about 80 tablets of oxycodone, 20 tablets of suspected ecstasy, various prescription medications, and various drug related items including scales and baggies. RCMP also seized $2,000 in cash.

The couple are due in Western Communities Courthouse on March 8 to face charges of drug possession and trafficking.

This is the second drug bust at this 3000-block Walfred Road home in the last 18 months.

In May 2010, a man and a woman were arrested and charged with drug possession and trafficking. West Shore RCMP couldn’t immediately confirm if they are the same individuals who were arrested on Friday.

The West Shore detachment had received a number of complaints in the past few months that drugs were being sold from the home.

“If you notice activity in your neighbourhood that you feel is suspicious please be pro-active and record your observations,” said Cpl. Bob Pilot, who heads up the street crime unit. “This type of assistance is invaluable to police.”
