File # 2019-6006
On June 19, the Oceanside RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence in Parksville. During the search of the residence, several items were recovered from the recently reported break and entry at the Log Cabin General Store in Parksville.
One 42 year old male of no fixed address has been arrested as a result of the search warrant and is facing charges of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. The investigation is ongoing and the Oceanside RCMP are expecting to arrest and forward charges against further individuals believed to be involved.
Another 50 year old male residing in the residence was found to be in possession of a significant amount of opioids. Charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking are being forwarded for consideration. Of significance, was that the accused is currently awaiting disposition for a prior drug trafficking investigation.
The tips received from the general public and the hard work of the Oceanside RCMP officers have resulted in a successful outcome to this series of related offences. - States Sergeant Rose
