A Stratford woman was in the process of selling drugs Friday when police swooped in.

The 30-year-old woman has not been named in a press release from the RCMP but she will be in court Jan. 14 next year to face trafficking charges.

"The suspect was in the process of making a drug transaction when she was arrested," said a police media report. "A subsequent search of the suspect and a related vehicle resulted in the seizure of a quantity of cocaine, prescription drugs, hashish, money and other drug paraphernalia."

The arrest was the work of the RCMP Queens District street crime unit and Charlottetown Police Service street crime unit.

The woman has been released from custody while she awaits her court appearances.

    She shouldn't have been released from custody. She'll be a flight risk or she'll stay in P.E.I. and try and sell more drugs. The police are doing their job but aren't getting enough backing from the courts. Her name should be made public.

    Why are the police not releashing her name? I think the public deserves to know who the drug dealers are if only to protect the children. The police release the names of the other people that they bust so why not this one?

    I don't understand how someone who is caught red-handed selling drugs can be released until the hearing in January. Isn't she just going to continue doing the exact same thing until then?

      "The woman has been released from custody while she awaits her court appearances" Why? And why wait till Jan 14th? Do we need more judges or just harder working ones? So, it's business as usual for her until Jan? Is there nowhere she can be incarcerated until then? Bread, bologne and water aren't expensive. At least have a tracking anklet on her and have her reporting in daily. Should have her, and others like her, in blocks with head and arms sticking out in a city square like the old days. Cops do a great job and this is the result. Poor, poor system.

    Was she actually delivering the stuff out of her vehicle. Hope it wasn't a taxi or other 'delivery' service. Sounds like distribution of opiates, crack etc has taken on a whole new meaning. I hope the RCMP seized the vehicle as well. They might even search her home, she is getting this stuff somewhere.

    good for the drug unit you have saved a few more kids. and i hope you can sell everything she owns if not the law should be set up that way. but i hope the courts gives her jail time long time and not weekends.

    The place she lives in should be pad locked. that will make sure people who own property pay a price. Renting to drug dealers has become an industry in itself. Landlord that allow this kind of activity should be paying a price! Heaven nows they are getting a big rent from people like this gal looking to set up shop.
