No break for carfentanil/fentanyl dealer James Nelson

“One of the most significant” fentanyl busts in Canada resulted in James Nelson and Cassie Bonthoux facing 14 charges of trafficking fentanyl and carfentanil through the dark web. BC's appeal court has upheld an 11-year prison sentence for Nelson, 39. Nelson could have bought himself 16 years. Police raided the couple's Duke & Duchess clothing store on Pandosy Street and home on Aug. 10, 2017. It was the culmination of an 11-month investigation.
More than 120 grams of pure fentanyl and carfentanil were seized in the raids, along with three kilograms of cutting agents. Overdose deaths in the Okanagan are at record levels. Overdose/poisoning calls are rising 32.4% yearly in Kelowna, with 1,040 calls in 2019.
