Three drug dealers were arrested in 24 hours.

 The RCMP say that last week they arrested three drug dealers within 24 hours, one of which had fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking.

 

On March 3 the police pulled over a vehicle after they saw a drug deal go down. They then searched the car and the two males inside. One of the occupants had 10.5 grams of crack cocaine, a large sum of cash, multiple cell phones, and a fixed blade hunting knife. More items related to trafficking were found inside the vehicle.

 

The two people have been charged with trafficking a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

 

31-year-old Midhun Kalpak Madhu of Whitehorse appeared in court last Friday and was released on conditions and pending future court dates. The other person arrested is a youth and can’t be identified by the police.

 

Suspicious vehicle in Riverdale

 

The day following those two arrests, the Whitehorse RCMP responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle in Riverdale. When the cops found the car there were items in plain view that led to an investigation and arrest.

 

After a search, the RCMP found individually wrapped packages what is believed to be fentanyl, several grams of a substance that tested positive as cocaine, a large sum of cash, scales, and clear baggies.

 

31-year-old Chase Keobke of Whitehorse was arrested for charges of possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a schedule 2 substance, and possession of property obtained by crime.

 

Keobke appeared in court on Friday and was released pending future court dates.
