While recovering several items stolen from the set of a Netflix show in early April, West Shore RCMP also seized drugs and drug trafficking items from a Colwood residence last week.
On April 1, the RCMP received a report on several items from a trailer for the filming of Maids, a 10-part series filmed in the area. The items included electronics and personal credit cards.
West Shore RCMP RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, which targets prolific offenders and property offenses, identified and arrested a 43-year-old Colwood resident on May 7 in connection with the robbery .
Police then executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home, where they recovered several items from the trailer. Officers also seized drugs, some believed to be fentanyl, and other drug-related property.
West Shore RCMP say they are recommending charges against the suspect.
“This is the type of crime that is not always of great value, but affects a large number of people. It violates that sense of security in our homes, businesses or vehicles, ”said Supt. Todd Preston, Officer in Charge of the West Shore RCMP. “This is why our Crime Reduction Unit targets these offenders, reinforcing the message to thieves operating in the area that we will continue to arrest and charge them.”
