RCMP have made a series of arrests on Gabriola targeting the drug trade on the island.
Corporal Darren Lagan says the investigation, which started in the summer, was led by the Island District RCMP’s General Investigation Section with help from Gabriola RCMP.
Lagan says they arrested a 39-year-old man in November, and three others more recently: A 39 year old woman and 50 year old man from Gabriola, and a 26 year old woman from Victoria.
They’re all facing charges related to the possession and trafficking of drugs like marijuana, meth and cocaine. They’ll all be appearing in court next month.
Lagan says investigators don’t expect to make any more arrests but they’re going to keep a close eye on any more drug-related activity on Gabriola.
