A Victoria woman faces a charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking after Victoria police searched a condominium in the 800-block of Johnson Street Thursday morning.

VicPD’s Strikeforce unit arrested a 30-year-old Victoria woman accused of dealing cocaine in the downtown.

“Our investigation led us to believe she was actively dealing,” said Strikeforce Det. Cst. Jason Eagles. “Fortunately we were able to act quickly and get these drugs off the street and hold our target accountable.”

Strikeforce and the Emergency Response team searched the home around on July 5 around 10:30 a.m.

Police seized seven ounces of cocaine, more than $4,500 in cash, a digital scale, and drug packaging materials. The cocaine has an estimated street value of $10,500 and police believe she was supplying dial-a-dope dealers in the downtown.
