Man arrested near Evergreen Centre following drug deal

Sooke RCMP seized drugs, cash and weapons from a man Tuesday after witnessing a drug deal.

Officers were in the area of Evergreen Centre on Sooke Road engaging in a proactive drug investigation when they saw the deal. They proceeded to arrest one man for possession of a controlled substance and, after searching him, found weapons and cash on him as well.

In total, officers seized cocaine, ketamine, MDMA, prescription pills, $6,000 cash, a large machete and pepper spray.
