Six people were arrested after police raided a home in Port McNeill.
According to Port McNeill RCMP, officers executed a search warrant at home on Chelan Crescent in Port McNeill on June 3, where they discovered six individuals inside and “evidence” that will be forwarded onwards to the BC Prosecution Service.

“Drug trafficking investigations are complex and require many members of a detachment working on a variety of tasks to obtain a successful conviction in court, which is the ultimate goal,” Cpl. Nathan Lingley of the Port McNeill RCMP said in a press release, adding. “This investigation yielded six persons arrested at the residence along with evidence the RCMP will put forward to the BC Prosecutions service to obtains charges of drug trafficking.”
The six individuals were arrested and have been released, according to police, who said some of them will be “summoned to court” in the future.
