Cash, marijuana rain from downtown building

Suspected drug dealer arrested

A group of people got their mitts on cash and pot being thrown off a roof last week.

On Thursday (June 16) at 4 p.m., a man stood on the roof of the Maycock Optical building on Blanshard Street, throwing money and marijuana. Some made off with the loot, but one person brought $1,340 in cash to VicPD.

Officers tracked the suspect to an apartment next door to the optical store. The suspect, a 33-year-old man, failed to explain his actions. When they arrested the known drug trafficker, police found another $2,500 in cash and $5,000 worth of pot inside the residence. He'll likely be charged with trafficking and breaching court orders.
