Police nab alleged drug traffickers in Hope

RCMP investigation leads to arrest of three local pub employees

Hope RCMP has arrested three people allegedly involved with drug trafficking.

The arrests resulted from an investigation conducted by the Hope plain clothes unit, which was launched after police received a Crime Stoppers tip on Dec. 19, 2012.

Investigators found evidence that a 32-year-old woman was trafficking narcotics from the Silver Chalice Pub, with the assistance of two other employees.

On Feb. 16 at about 6 p.m., the woman was arrested at work after police obtained evidence that drug trafficking had just occurred. A 38-year-old female and a 58-year-old man were also arrested for the same offence. The three have since been released on several conditions.

“Police often hear rumors of drug activity from members of the community, however, rumors do not hold up in court,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “It is only when members of the community decide to speak up, and provide us with specific information, that we can make arrests and recommend charges. We encourage the public to report crime when they see it, as it is an invaluable tool for us.”
