Drugs, stolen goods recovered in Victoria residence

VicPD arrest six in Cook Street home, approve charges for three

Three people face drug charges after six were arrested last evening.

Victoria police executed a search warrant around 5 p.m. on Aug. 1 in the 300-block of Cook Street.

Police seized drugs, including crack cocaine and heroin, and two canisters of bear spray. Officers also recovered a large amount of stolen property, including televisions, laptops, smart phones and electronic tablets.

“Given the home’s proximity to the Pandora corridor, you can appreciate that these individuals were quite active in the street-level drug trade,” said Sgt. Lesley Watson in a statement.

Five women and a man were taken into custody.

A 32-year-old man, 26-year-old woman, and 25-year-old woman face a total 10 drug-related charges.

Police hope to return stolen property to rightful owners.
