Nanaimo RCMP turned up approximately $100,000 worth of heroin, crystal methamphetamine, crack cocaine and powdered cocaine, and more than $14,000 cash at a Nanaimo rental home on November 12, 2014. The discovery followed a search warrant relating to an attempted abduction of two Nanaimo men the previous day.
Police arrested one woman and three men in relation to an attempted abduction of a 31-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy near the parking lot of the Foundry Pub on Skinner Street, November 11, 2014. One of the two victims managed to escape the abduction attempt. The other was later found with a broken nose and several broken fingers.
A 25-year-old woman, and a 31-year-old man were subsequently charged in the attempted abduction, and now also face charges for Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.
Following the search warrant, police also turned up identification that was allegedly stolen from a parked car several months earlier, and used to secure the lease for the 1400 Jingle Pot townhouse where the drugs were located. RCMP will be recommending additional charges against the woman relating to the stolen identification.
Police found one of two vehicles allegedly used in the abduction attempt (a 2014 GMC Terrain), but are still looking for grey Toyota Sienna, with a BC license plate 649 MPN.
Nanaimo police are asking witnesses to come forward, and to stay on the lookout for the missing vehicle. Witnesses can contact the RCMP via Crimestoppers (1-800-222-8477) or on line via www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com
