🚔 Loaded Handgun, $25,000, Cocaine, Methamphetamine and Fentanyl Seized In Arrest🚔

Victoria, BC- A Victoria man is facing multiple charges after VicPD officers seized a loaded handgun, $25,000 in cash, and significant amounts of cocaine, methamphetamine and fentanyl during an arrest on July 4th, 2019.

Officers with VicPD’s Strike Force section and a Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team (GVERT) officer deployed with our Patrol Division took the man into custody in the 200-block of Gorge Road East following a several weeks’ long investigation. While searching the man incident to arrest officers discovered the cash, drugs and a loaded 9mm caliber pistol, along with two loaded pistol magazines and additional ammunition. These items were seized. No one was injured.

The man has alleged links to organized crime, having self-identified to officers as a member of the Nortenos gang.

Roy Pelgrom faces seven charges including those for possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a firearm without a license, possession of a loaded prohibited weapon, and careless storage of a firearm. He is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.


This is a perfect example of why Ben and his disciples are right about the urgent need to reduce the police force. If VicPD were able to do more of this, it could start to have a negative impact on the street drug trade, we could end up with less people falling prey to addiction, etc, etc. Thank god Ben and his team are doing their bit to stop this happening.

Roy appears to be quite the charmer. 50 court appearances with hundreds of charges over the past 15 years.

 

We might want to think about designing a new system. The current one clearly isn't working.

If we locked up all of the criminals, what would police do all day?

I can’t help but think there’s far more at play here. You’ve got 20% of the criminal element responsible for 80% of criminal activity and somehow we can’t get a handle on the situation. Why is that?

This type of behaviour appears to be on the rise, no?

At about 11pm on July 18, 2019, a 31 year old woman was walking home through Rutledge Park when an unknown man wrapped his arms around her upper body from behind. The man didn’t say anything and released the woman when she kicked her leg back towards him. The man immediately fled the park towards Cloverdale Avenue.

The woman remained in the park until police arrived, including a K9 team, and searched the area. The man was not located though.

The woman was physically uninjured and has since been supported by Victim Services.

Despite efforts by police, the man remains unidentified. He is described as being Caucasian, 6’0” to 6’3”, skinny, with messy hair and scruffy facial hair. He was wearing dark pants and a Mexican style knit blanket sweater with black and grey stripes.

I don't know if it's on the rise or just women not taking this BS any more and fighting back and reporting it.

Right, that could be it. Maybe with metoo the prevalence of these reports is likelier to materialize.

Of course, the other crime here is police did not ask for assistance for FIVE WEEKS. What the heck.

July 18th? Why the delay in asking for the public's assistance? Someone might have remembered seeing the suspect in the mexican blanket sweater getup a day or two later but a month later is a real stretch.

[A security cam image of a young couple was in this spot, along with an explanation from a restaurant employee alleging they stole a phone belonging to Alfred the Flower Man. I've deleted the image for privacy reasons pending further information from police]

Oh oh. They might want to have the police release this on their behalf. This may not end well if it turns out they didn't steal the phone, there was a misunderstanding or they accidentally took his phone thinking it was theirs.

You know if you were a little sweeter... and no complimenting the excellent police work that I’ve seen around our community is not a bribe.
