During a search warrant, police seized approximately 2.4 kilograms of marijuana, a small quantity of cocaine. a significant amount of cash, trafficking paraphernalia and brass knuckles.
Police say Jesse William Coburn of Nanaimo, British Columbia has been charged with three narcotic-related offences and a weapons charge.
“The resolve is very strong among our members to rid our community of those who would come here to distribute illicit drugs,” stated Cst Elenore Sturko.
“This arrest is evidence of the RCMP’s strong commitment to bring to justice those responsible for the harm that accompanies the trafficking and use of illicit drugs.”
Coburn, 29, appeared in court Wednesday and will be held in custody until his next appearance on Friday.
