An anonymous tip led to a drug bust in a home on Weaver Place in Langford.
“It’s a hop, skip and jump away from an elementary school,” said Cpl. Bob Pilot of West Shore RCMP Street Crime Unit.
After arresting two individuals for trafficking a controlled substance, the West Shore RCMP Street Crime Unit executed a search warrant on the home at 10 p.m., June 20.
“We watched them and surveilled them out, then watched them do some deals,” Pilot said.
A 24-year-old man, who was a resident of the home, and a 29-year-old woman face charges for trafficking a controlled substance. They have been released and will be in the Western Communities courthouse, Sept. 20.
One ounce of cocaine and a quarter-pound of marijuana was discovered in the house. The officers also seized $2,300 in cash and an automobile.
The West Shore RCMP Street Crime Unit had the home under surveillance after receiving the tip early in May.
“Anonymous tips are good, but I could have wrapped this case up a lot faster,” said Pilot explaining the tip came in a letter with no contact information. “If people wish to remain anonymous, I’ll never reveal a name unless it’s a life or death situation.”
Pilot suggests anyone with information can call or send a letter, but should include their contact information.
