Investigation leads VicPD to cocaine, heroin, suspected traffickers

A week-long police investigation culminated in the arrest of a prolific offender, who police say is a "known and dangerous drug trafficker" with a history of violence.

Bryden Bingley, 31, was arrested by police as he left his View Street residence. Two other men and a woman, were also arrested.

"We are thankful (Bingley) is back in custody, and will continue to monitor and target his activities until things change,” said Staff Sgt. Dave Bown.

VicPD launched the investigation after receiving information about a possible gun at a residence in the 800-block of View St. A search warrant executed at the home June 5 turned up more than $5,000 worth of cocaine and heroin, although no firearm was found, said Const. Mike Russell.

Three of the four people arrested, including Bingley and Saanich resident Rose Stewart, 30, each faced two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. they were scheduled to appear in court last Thursday.
