Drug and weapons charges laid


On May 1, Ste. Rose RCMP, along with assistance from the newly-formed West District Crime Reduction Enforcement Support Team (CREST) executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant at a residence located on the Ebb and Flow First Nation.
The search resulted in the seizure of over 95 grams of cocaine, a firearm and a large sum of Canadian currency.
Officers arrested Brian Cochrane, 55, at the scene and remanded him into custody on charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime and unsafe storage of a firearm.
The Crime Reduction Enforcement Support Team focuses on intelligence-based investigations into drugs, rural property crime and serious, prolific offenders within our communities. Tere are currently three CREST teams in the province, one in the north, one in the east and one in the west.
Ste. Rose RCMP continue to investigate.
