Police search leads to arrest

A search warrant carried out by the Nanaimo RCMP’s crime reduction unit has shut down an active drug house.

Police entered an upper level of a home in the 200 block of Lambert Avenue just before 7 p.m. Wednesday and encountered three adult males and one 15-year-old female.

All four were taken into custody and a search of the house turned up approximately three ounces of crack cocaine, a half- ounce of crystal methamphetamine, 2,000 pills of ecstasy and $800 in Canadian currency.

The three males, one 21, and the other two 22 years of age, were  released on promise to appear Jan. 17.

Police are recommending charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking. The female was not charged.
