Eight people are facing a slate of drugs and weapons charges thanks to resident reports of suspicious activity last month.

On Oct. 18, Victoria and Saanich police executed search warrants in the 2400-block of Wark St., 900-block of Darwin Ave. and at a storage locker after conducting undercover surveillance on several suspects. The searches netted a bounty of drugs, cash, weapons and suspected stolen property.

A 35-year-old Saanich man, Michael Dubensky and seven others are facing drugs and weapons charges.
