Update: Third Man Wanted In Connection With Alleged Drug Trafficking Network Turns Himself In
A third person wanted in connection to a CFSEU-BC investigation into alleged drug trafficking in B.C.’s Peace Region has turned himself into the Burnaby RCMP.
In July 2015, the CFSEU-BC North District Office began an investigation in street and mid-level drug traffickers which resulted in the arrests of multiple individuals and the seizure of drugs and firearms.
As a result of the investigation, the CFSEU-BC’s North District Office seized cocaine, fentanyl, percocets, an AR15 semi-automatic rifle, as well as crystal methamphetamine, GHB, amphetamine, cash, and two additional firearms, from five search warrants and numerous traffic stops.
19-year old Preston Norris of Williams Lake is charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and until yesterday, when he turned himself into the Burnaby RCMP, had a warrant out for his arrest.
Preston Norris was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Dawson Creek Provincial Court on October 18th, 2016.
The CFSEU-BC would like to thank the Burnaby RCMP for their assistance.
