Police arrest man for opening store selling hard drugs in Canada

Recommended Posts

A Canadian man has been arrested in British Columbia for opening a mobile shop to sell cocaine, heroin and other hard drugs.

Jerry Martin, 51, has said he plans to challenge his arrest in court, arguing contaminated drug supplies cause harm.

Vancouver police said it arrested a man for "drug trafficking in connection with an illicit drug dispensary" but have not laid formal charges.

The arrest on Thursday came one day after Mr Martin opened his shop.

He began selling the drugs on Wednesday out of a mobile trailer parked in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, a neighbourhood with a high rate of drug use and concentrated drug overdose prevention services.
