One man faces charges after police found drugs, weapons and cash in a suite in the 900-block of Johnson Street.
Victoria Police Department and Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team arrested a man Oct. 15 in the 900-block of Pandora Avenue and seized fentanyl, weapons, and cash after an investigation that started in early October. Officers used a loud distraction device during the arrest over concerns the man was in possession of weapons. Officers searched the man following the arrest and seized a can of bear spray.
During a search of his suite in a multi-unit residential building, officers seized quantities of fentanyl that they describe as consistent with drug trafficking, a cattle prod, a baton, taser, and a replica firearm, as well as nearly $8,000 in cash.
The suspect was released from custody pending further investigation.
