Regional drug ring busted by VicPD

Victoria Police Department took down a "Sooke to Sidney" dial-a-dope operation last week, attributing the success to its newly created crime reduction unit.

Officers seized a handgun, $25,000 in cash and about $20,000 worth of crack cocaine and heroin at two residences in the 1400-block of Stadacona Ave.

Police will be making an application to seize the residences under the Civil Forfeiture Act.

A 34-year-old Victoria man and a 31-year-old Vancouver woman both face charges in the invesitgation, and have been released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

A 28-year-old Victoria woman was also arrested at the time, but her ties to the operation are still under investigation.
