A Campbell River man was arrested Dec. 10 after a two month long drug trafficking investigation, Campbell River RCMP said.
Members of the Campbell River RCMP Street Crime Unit executed search warrants on a vehicle belonging to Brandon Viskovich along with two residences associated with Viskovich, police say.
As a result, police located and seized 22.85 grams of Cocaine, 347 grams of psilocybin and approximately one pound of cannabis marijuana. Police also seized over $26,000 in cash and two vehicles as Offence Related Property. In addition to the drugs and proceeds of crimes, an extensive list was seized that is believed to be a drug client list.
Viskovich has been charged with:
