A six-month long drug sting operation by the Delta Police Department targeting a Dial-A-Dope operation in the South Delta area has resulted in criminal charges for four Ladner men, and one from Richmond, under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA).

“This is a good day for Delta," said Inspector Lorne Pike. "This investigation resulted in the

suppression of a significant drug operation in the South Delta area that had a direct impact

in the community. Delta Police Drug members removed a significant amount of drugs from

being distributed on our streets and have brought those supplying and trafficking in

controlled substances in this case before the courts.”

The long-term project was conducted by the Delta Police Drug Section and culminated with the execution of a search warrant in Richmond earlier this month, conducted with the assistance of the Richmond RCMP Drug Section.

Evidence found in the raid led to the arrest of four men from Ladner - Richard Joly, Michael Galley, Richard Jenkins, and Nickolas Drew - were charged with trafficking in a controlled substance, while Christian Cameron of Richmond was charged with trafficking, as well as possession for the purpose of trafficking.

All fivemen have been released on bail with numerous court ordered conditions.
