An investigation targeting a residence on Vincent Avenue resulted in three arrests last week.
The Saanich Police Street Crime Unit had been monitoring suspicious activity at a residence in the 300 block of Vincent Avenue for several months. The home had been the subject of a search warrant in June 2021, which saw arrests and charges for two persons for Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.
In March 2022, Saanich Police attended the residence and seized firearms that were located inside.
On April 13, 2022, the Street Crime Unit executed another search warrant on the residence with assistance from the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team. Police located and seized illicit drugs and evidence to support charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking against three persons, two of whom were the same individuals facing charges from the investigation back in June. Two of these persons were held in custody and are set to appear in court later this month.
Ruth Sabourin, 42, Kenneth Harris, 45, and Nathan Todd, 40, are all facing two counts each of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.
“There had been considerable police activity on Vincent Avenue for several months and we knew the neighbourhood had been concerned,” said Cst. Markus Anastasiades. “We made every effort to be responsive to the needs of the community.”
