On April 5 VicPD officers arrested the woman in the 2800-block of Jacklin Road in Langford.

With the assistance of the West Shore RCMP, officers subsequently executed a search warrant and located evidence consistent with drug trafficking including one thousand individually pre-packaged drugs. The drugs are believed to be fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine with an approximate street value of $30,000.
