Drugs believed to be methamphetamine, fentanyl and, cocaine, were seized by RCMP from the suspect during the arrest, as well as an undisclosed amount of cash.

Aubie, 41, of Chilliwack, is charged with three counts of possessing a controlled drug/substance for the purpose of trafficking. He was released on bail, appeared in court on Oct. 13, 15 and 23, and his next court date is set for Nov. 13.

Aubie’s record goes back to 1998 when he was arrested for possession of stolen property, personation with intent to gain advantage and four counts of causing a person to use a forged document. He was convicted on two counts and sentenced to 60 days.

Since then he has been a frequent and consistent visitor to cells and the courthouse.

In addition to the above charges he faced in Chilliwack court on Oct. 23, he was also in court that day charged alongside 25-year-old Chelsey Rae Loranger.
