RCMP arrest two for possession of meth and heroin

Two local residents have been arrested for possession of methamphetamine and heroin.

RCMP are asking for residents of the Nakusp area and New Denver to be on the lookout for Nathan Daniel Fahl. Fahl has warrants out for theft of a motor vehicle and breaching of undertaking. If spotted

Two residents of Nakusp were arrested by local RCMP on April 20, along Highway 6 near Nakusp.

Saedy Jones and Kenneth Millar each face one charge of possession with the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine and one charge of possession with the purpose of trafficking herion.

Ten grams of methamphetamine and .5 grams of heroin were recovered.

The total street value is estimated to be about $2,200.

While there have been arrests in Nakusp for possession of meth, an arrest for possession of heroin is unusual.

“Since I’ve been here, I’ve not seen heroin at all,” said Cpl. Jason Burndred of the Nakusp RCMP. “Heroin is quite troubling to see in this area.”

He said it’s good RCMP intercepted it, but heroin is a drug that has its own unique challenges. It’s a highly addictive opiate- based drug, and there are a lot of problems associated with heroin abuse.

“Due to the nature of it, it’s a physiologically dependant drug,” Burndred continued. “It’s a drug that will actually make you sick if you withdraw from it.”

Jones and Millar are slated to appear in court on May 26.

Nakusp RCMP are also asking residents to be on the lookout for Nathan Daniel Fahl.

Fahl has a warrant out for his arrest for theft of a motor vehicle, and a warrant for breaching of undertaking.

He is believed to be in the Nakusp area or New Denver.

If spotted, residents are asked to phone the RCMP.
