Saanich Police, with the assistance of the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team, arrested three people for drug trafficking at a Saanich home March 22.

Saanich Police Drug Section and Property Crime Unit began an investigation into a suspected drug home in the 3600 block of Craigmillar Avenue in January.

“This is an area a block away from a local park that is well used by everyone in the community” said acting Sgt. Jereme Leslie with Saanich Police. “This is an example of a criminal setting up a drug operation in a quiet residential area to avoid detection.   Our officers are targeting criminals, such as these ones, to ensure our Saanich community remains safe.”

Following the arrest of the three individuals, Saanich Police, who had obtained a search warrant, performed a search of the home on Craigmillar Avenue.  Police located marijuana, methamphetamine and a number of weapons.

One man and one woman, both residents of the Greater Victoria area, were released and will appear in court at the beginning of May.  The other person arrested, 41-year-old Jamie Aaron Dougall of Saanich, was held in custody and is facing one count of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.  The investigation still continues and Officers expect to lay more charges in the future.
