After a lengthy investigation, the Comox Valley RCMP arrested three men believed to be involved in the local drug trade.

Thousands of dollars and a substantial amount of drugs were seized before they could reach the streets.

On Nov. 17, after much co-ordination, the Comox Valley’s drug section with the assistance of other members, executed simultaneous search warrants. Four locations were searched, three were homes and one a motel room, all in the Comox Valley.

These searches resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of crack cocaine, powder cocaine, heroin and marijuana. Over $15,000 cash and two vehicles were also seized.

“We are pleased to have these drugs off our streets. Many families are affected by the drug trade and we all need to do our part to remove illegal drugs from the hands of those looking to make a profit,” says Const. Nicole Hall of the Comox Valley RCMP.

Three men were arrested and have since been released by the courts. Hai (Howie) Trinh, 34; Gavin Charles Pybus, 29; and Jon Mathew Bamcord, 20, are all accused of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

To report information on a crime and remain anonymous, call Comox Valley Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
