File # 2020-32132
A 2020 drug trafficking investigation undertaken by Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit recently resulted in charges against five people.
The Public Prosecution Service of Canada approved one charge of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking against each of Kody Dwayne Mosser, Ericka Ostroski, Daryl Michael Tugnum and Robyn Ann Bradley. One charge of Possession for the Purpose of Selling Cannabis was approved against Mavra Ashley Lode.
This investigation resulted in a large quantity of suspected illicit drugs and prescription pills being taken off of our streets. Our Street Crew Unit, with the assistance of units such as Prince George Serious Crimes, Police Dog Services and Air Services, as well as the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team, put in tireless amounts of effort to get the investigation to this stage, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, media spokesperson for the Prince George RCMP.
The multi-jurisdictional file lead to charges being approved in a parallel RCMP investigation in Smithers, as well.
On Thursday December 3, 2020, the Prince George RCMP’s Street Crew Unit executed Controlled Drugs and Substance Act warrants at residences and locations in multiple places throughout the City of Prince George and into Salmon Valley.
In total police seized approximately 1.5 kilograms of cocaine, an abundance of prescription pills, and hundreds of doses of steroids and GHB, along with over $35, 000 in cash, and two trucks. Estimates suggest that the cannabis extraction lab and the production and sale of psilocybin could generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue annually.
