RCMP arrest Hope man

James McGuire has been charged with three counts of drug and firearm related offences

A 65-year-old Hope man has been charged with three counts of drug and firearm related offences.

On May 29, a search warrant was executed in the 900 block of Fraser Ave. and homeowner James McGuire was arrested. The warrant execution was a joint effort between the Hope RCMP, the Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team, the Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Service, and the Upper Fraser Valley RCMP Drug Section.

“We were actively investigating drug and stolen property related offences which resulted in a warrant being executed on this property,” said Cpl. Darren Rennie. “We would especially like to thank the members of the Hope community because without their assistance, this matter would not have come to a successful conclusion.”

Anyone with any information regarding drug and firearm offences is asked to contact police at 604 869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS).
