VANCOUVER ISLAND (NEWS 1130) – Mounties on Vancouver Island say a suspected drug dealer called the police to report that he had been robbed of his drugs.

West Shore RCMP say the 18-year-old was bear sprayed and robbed near a bus loop.

But, police allege he was trying to sell Xanax pills at the time of the robbery.

He was apparently jumped by two men who stole the pills, and some cash.

A 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy were arrested a short time later trying to buy booze with the pilfered cash.

Police say an investigation into all parties is ongoing.
