Police arrested five people last week following the investigation of an alleged West Trail drug ring.
The afternoon of Thursday, June 24, Trail and Greater District RCMP executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act on a residence and recreational vehicle in the 1000-block of Birch Avenue.
“RCMP officers conducted an investigation into alleged drug trafficking believed to be occurring from the recreational vehicle and residence,” RCMP spokesperson Madonna Saunderson reported in a Friday news brief.
”Five people were arrested at the residence and two were taken into police custody.”
A small amount of a substance, suspected to be an illicit street drug, was seized during the search.
The investigation is ongoing.
