Man faces charges following drug raid

Brandon police have reportedly seized an estimated $800,000 worth of marijuana and cocaine as part of an investigation into an illegal drug ring.

On Monday, police reportedly raided a Brandon-area property, where they seized about 125 pounds of marijuana and two kilograms of cocaine. They also seized a couple of unsafely stored firearms.

None of this information has been confirmed with the Brandon Police Service.

Jayant David Venn, 33, is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of proceeds obtained by crime and weapon offences.

He’s currently in custody pending a court appearance on Thursday.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Meanwhile, it appears the drug bust was the result of a police operation that targeted a drug network that has been operating in the area.

There’s word that two men have also been arrested in Dauphin in relation to the same investigation.
