Heroin and crack cocaine seized during Duncan drug bust

Two males were arrested for drug trafficking Wednesday during a bust at the Duncan Safeway gas bar.

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesman Cpl. Kevin Day said two members of the RCMP Street Crew caught the two Duncan males — one adult and one youth — in the act of trafficking narcotics at about 4 p.m.

A small quantity of heroin and crack cocaine was seized.

"Both males were later released from custody by way of a promise-to-appear with a court date in late April," Day said.

"Police are in the process of forwarding charges for possession for the purpose of trafficking on both individuals."
