Three people were arrested on Tuesday following a month-long drug trafficking investigation in Central Saanich and across the Greater Victoria area.

The first man was arrested on the Trans-Canada Highway at Koksilah Road in the Cowichan Valley following a traffic stop.

The Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team assisted in the arrest of a second man during a traffic stop on the Trans-Canada Highway near Admirals Road.

Police later arrested a woman at home on Benvenuto Avenue in Central Saanich after they executed a search warrant. About 10 grams of cocaine and cash were seized from the house.

All three face charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

“The abuse of dangerous drugs is a community issue in Central Saanich, and to stop the harm we need to work closely with the community,” said Police Chief Les Sylven.
