On July 28 a pair of Comox Valley RCMP plain clothes members were on patrol in Courtenay, when the driver of a vehicle caught their attention. A traffic stop was conducted, which resulted in a drive while prohibited investigation. During the investigation, a quantity of methamphetamine, heroin and cash was located.
Thirty-nine-year-old Courtenay resident Richard Cahoon is facing two charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, two charges of breach of recognizance, and one charge of driving while prohibited.
Cahoon made his first court appearance on Aug. 3 and was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on Aug. 11.
This was the second time Cahoon was arrested for drugs in just over a month. He was one of three people arrested in June as a result of the execution of two separate residential search warrants. (See http://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/385493211.html )
