Victoria police seized drugs and a vehicle during the arrest of a woman connected to an ongoing drug trafficking investigation.

By April 29, Greater Victoria’s Emergency Response Team arrested the woman in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue, where they found more evidence of drug trafficking. VicPD executed a search warrant on the woman’s Mini Cooper and Victoria residence.

Recovered throughout the investigation were amounts of cocaine, as well as suspected fentanyl and methamphetamine and the woman has been charged with possession of controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking.

Anyone with information on this case can contact VicPD at 250-995-7654, ext. 1, or report anonymously to Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
