Six people are facing 22 criminal charges after a two-day undercover drug bust in Dawson Creek.
Dawson Creek RCMP say they executed two search warrants on March 6 as part of the undercover operation named EPLOVER, investigating street level cocaine trafficking. They seized undisclosed amounts of cocaine, marijuana and cash.
The five males and one female face several charges ranging from trafficking cocaine, conspiracy to traffic cocaine and possession of the proceeds of crime.
One of the accused is alleged to have sold cocaine to an undercover officer twice throughout the investigation and had already been charged with selling cocaine to an undercover police officer several times last fall.
Three of the six accused have been released on bail, while two remain in custody and another is still awaiting a bail hearing.
Police say they are not releasing the accuseds’ names until after their first court appearance.
Anyone with information relating to drug activity in the Dawson Creek area is asked to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP detachment at 250-784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
