Cops bust drug deal

Call it good police intuition.

Members of the Vernon RCMP’s community response unit were working April 29 in the 3200 block of 25th Avenue, near the Green Valley Motel.

“Surveillance was established on a lone individual driving in the area who appeared to be involved in drug dealing activities,” said Cpl. Gerry Kovacs.

The driver of this vehicle was eventually stopped and police seized a small quantity of cocaine, cash and three cell phones.

A Vernon man, 19, was arrested and later released on a promise to appear in court. He is facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
