Victoria, BC-  Two persons are in custody after a drug investigation led to a response by the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team (GVERT).

Patrol and Community Services Division officers attended a unit in a multi-unit residential building in the 3000-block of Douglas Street just after 11:00 a.m. this morning for a drug investigation.

Upon arrival, officers noted a noxious odour seeming to come from one of units. Two persons were believed to be inside. Concerned for the safety and well-being of those in the area, several units were evacuated. Additional resources, including the GVERT, as well as Victoria Fire and BC Ambulance Service were activated and attended.

The two persons inside exited the suite and were taken into custody without incident.

There were no injuries.

This file remains under investigation.
