11 people charged in undercover drug bust

 

Dawson Creek RCMP have laid 32 criminal charges on 11 people after a three month undercover drug operation.

Three females and eight males are facing charges ranging from trafficking cocaine to failing to comply with probation, and/or bail conditions. The names of those charged will not be released until they make their first court appearances on Jan. 4.

The undercover operation was called EPLOVER and targeted street level cocaine dealing. As a part of the operation two searh warrants were executed on ‘crack shacks’ in the downtown core during the week of Oct. 18. This is the second undercover drug project to take place this year in Dawson Creek.

The RCMP would like the community to report any suspicious drug activity to the Dawson Creek Detatchment or by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
