Note to drug dealers: When selling your goods, dont do it in front of the cops.
On Monday afternoon, just a few metres from a pair of Saanich police inspectors one in full uniform sitting in an unmarked car, two men decided to carry out a marijuana exchange in the parking lot at University Heights Shopping Centre. Both appeared to look at the police vehicle, but it didnt seem to register with them, said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen.
The deal started with a 25-year-old man sitting in a car, separated by a single empty space from the police.
Moments later, a young man on a bike with a backpack showed up, Jantzen said.
The cyclist, aged 27 and the alleged trafficker in the situation, entered the car and quite an obvious transaction took place, he said.
The two men were quickly arrested.
Two plastic containers of marijuana were seized, with each one holding eight packages of about 10 grams each.
