Trail man busted for drugs, cash and weapon

The crime reduction unit and Trail RCMP executed the search warrant on Thursday

Fentanyl, meth, cash and a weapon were seized by police in a recent Trail drug bust.

Just before 6 p.m. on Dec. 13, the Joint Crime Reduction Unit of Trail and Castlegar, with the assistance of the Trail force, executed a search warrant on the 800 block of Rossland Avenue.

“A male suspect was taken into custody by police after the execution of the search warrant,” Sgt. Mike Wicentowich reported. “Fentanyl, methamphetamine, Canadian currency, and a prohibited weapon were seized from the residence.”

The suspect was released from custody the following day and is slated for his first appearance on March 7 at the Rossland Provincial Courthouse.

No name will be released until official charges are sworn in by the Crown.

Police remind the public to report suspicious activity to their local detachment or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
