Update: Trail RCMP seize drugs, shotgun, and cash

Warrant in East Trail yields meth, fentanyl, heroin, gun and stolen property

A local man, 44, is behind bars facing charges for drug trafficking and prohibited firearm possession after a search warrant was executed in East Trail last week.

The accused is known to police.

“He remains in custody and will likely stay in custody,” Sgt. Mike Wicentowich told the Trail Times on Monday.

The man was arrested on Wednesday, Sept. 11 after the Trail and Greater District RCMP along with the Joint Crime Reduction Unit, and the Trail General Investigation Section, carried out the warrant on a residence located on the 1400 block of Second Avenue.

The RCMP seized 26 grams of methamphetamine, 22 grams of fentanyl, three grams of heroin as well as other illicit drugs and drug trafficking paraphernalia, Wicentowich reported Thursday.

A “sawed-off” shotgun, ammunition, $4800 in cash and stolen property was also recovered.

Police will be pursuing charges of Trafficking, Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, and charges related to the possession of the prohibited firearm.

The accused is scheduled to appear in Rossland Provincial Court on Thursday, Sept. 19.

Police will not publicly release his identity until charges are sworn in by Crown counsel.

The recovered stolen property includes a road bike, a mountain bike, an air compressor, and a tool case from a local company.

Wicentowich asks the public to contact the Trail detachment if you are the owner of the bicycles or air compressor.

No one had come forward to claim the stolen items as of Monday.
