Saanich police seized nearly 40 grams of the drug crystal meth after an off-duty officer arrested a man who was acting suspiciously.
The officer stopped the man Monday afternoon on suspicion that he had been involved in a break-in, police spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen said. Police found three containers each with 13 grams of crystal meth. He also had a can containing the liquid drug gamma hydroxybutyrate, or GHB. Jantzen said the drugs had a street value of thousands of dollars.
The 34-year-old Saanich man faces charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
