Two men from Richmond and Burnaby are facing charges after police in Saskatchewan seized a large quantity of cocaine, meth and illicit cigarettes during a drug bust last week.
The drugs were seized during an investigation into alleged illegal drug trafficking in Regina and Moose Jaw by the Regina Police Service Drug Unit (RDU).
The Regina Police Service says 25-year-old Nikola Galic, of Richmond, and 27-year-old Andrej Ranisavljevic, of Burnaby, are facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine, possession for the purpose of the sale of unstamped illicit cigarettes and possession of unstamped tobacco.
According to police, on Sept. 10, search warrants were executed by the RDU and various police agencies at addresses in Moose Jaw and on a vehicle.
As a result of the searches, police seized more than 3.3 kilograms of cocaine, 758.63 grams of methamphetamine and 20,000 unstamped illegal cigarettes.
Multiple scales, cell phones, packaging and “other items to support drug trafficking substances” were also seized, according to Regina police.
Galic and Ranisavljevic are set to make their first court appearances on Nov. 1.
