A Whistler man is facing possible charges after he was reportedly caught red-handed in the midst of a drug deal, police said in a release.

At about 11:20 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 9, officers on foot patrol along the Village Stroll noticed a man “acting suspiciously” in the 4000 block of Whistler Way, police said. Mounties quickly learned the male was engaged in a drug exchange. He was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

Investigators then uncovered a quantity of suspected cocaine, MDMA and cash, police said. The suspect was then re-arrested for drug trafficking.

The 23-year-old was eventually released from custody with a promise to appear in North Vancouver court in April.
