A 23-year-old man is facing drug possession charges after he was arrested while trying to board a ferry at the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal bound for Victoria.
Alphonse Bruce Gomien was attempting to board a B.C. Ferry to Swartz Bay on Jan. 3 when members of the RCMP Pacific Shiprider Program found him to be in possession of three kilograms of cocaine, heroin and unknown substances – still to be determined.
He has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a controlled substance.
The Shiprider Program is responsible for maritime security and federal enforcement in the Pacific region.
