On February 15th, 2023, Castlegar RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, with assistance from other Detachment officers, arrested two men for allegedly being responsible for the trafficking of suspected drugs. The arrests came after officers conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle the two accused occupied while in the 600 block of Christina Place in Castlegar, BC.

Further investigation led to the seizure of a large quantity of suspected Fentanyl, Methamphetamine, and Canadian currency.

Both men, 30-years-old, and 59-year-old, Castlegar residents, were later released on court-imposed conditions, with a first appearance in Castlegar Provincial Court on July 27th, 2023.

Castlegar RCMP are continuing their investigation into possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, contrary to section 5(2) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The matter will be forwarded to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for full charge assessment.
