A former RCMP officer in Kamloops, British Columbia, has been charged with dealing drugs.
Randi Love, 40, who served as the Kamloops detachment media relations officer in 2009, is charged with three counts of drug trafficking linked to alleged offences last spring.
The former officer allegedly trafficked cocaine between June 13 and June 26, 2015, according to court documents.
Investigaton leads to suspension
RCMP E-Division spokesman Staff Sgt. Rob Vermeulen said police became aware of allegations involving Love on July 16, 2015, and launched a comprehensive investigation.
She was suspended from duty on August 7.
Love submitted her discharge papers last October, a detailed report was submitted to Crown at the completion of the investigation and charges were approved in May, Vermeulen confirmed.
Her first appearance is set for June 16 in Kamloops. (CFJC)
