Suspected Drug Traffickers


A suspected drug trafficker is scheduled to be back in court today, following his arrest last week for the second time in three weeks.


Following his February 16th arrest Scott Wesner was charged with drug possession and trafficking, three counts of possession of a weapon and two counts of failing to comply with his probation order.

Originally from the Lower Mainland, he was released from custody the next day but ordered to leave Fort St. John and not to be located with the City limits except for court purposes.

However, last Friday he was again arrested in Fort St. John and charged with cocaine possession for the purpose of trafficking and three counts each, of failing to comply with his probation order and failing to comply with a recognizance.

Meantime, Dean Carson Panrucker remains in local police custody pending his next court appearance next Monday.

He faces 17 separate charges relating to drug and firearms offenses.
