Charges have been filed against a 40-year-old woman in connection with a Chemainus search warrant carried out at a rental property in January that turned up methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl, counterfeit money and stolen property.
Federal Crown counsel approved two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking for Schivon Metcalf in late September. When she was subsequently arrested after a warrant was issued, she was charged with three more trafficking charges after drugs and paraphernalia were found.
“Drug traffickers often select rental properties that will then become hubs for criminal activity and cause considerable strains on neighbourhoods,” said Const. Kevin Houlgate of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Street Crime Unit. “The North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP will continue to target individuals and properties that negatively impact our communities due to drug trafficking and other illegal activity.”
