ABBOTSFORD, B.C. – A Fort St. John man charged in relation to a cocaine seizure in Halifax, has been apprehended by Federal RCMP on an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
On Monday, September 30, the Federal RCMP Major Projects team arrested Darcy Peter Bailey at a residence in Abbotsford.
Police say Bailey was known to the investigators to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest in relation to 65 charges, mainly weapons offenses, issued out of Fort St John.
RCMP were able to take Bailey into custody without incident and presented him to Court later that day.
He is set to next appear in Court on October 8, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. in Fort St John.
Although sworn out of Fort St John, the charges are connected to a wider investigation stemming out of Halifax, NS.
“This arrest was one small aspect of the tremendous work our teams have done in support of our Federal counterparts in Halifax,” said Supt. Richard Bergevin, Officer in Charge of the Federal Serious and Organized Crime – Major Projects team in BC.
