A 22-year-old White Rock man is the latest person to be charged with drug trafficking as a result of a three-month undercover police investigation in the seaside city.

Thomas James Sharman appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Feb. 28 on two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance. He is due back in court on March 20.

Sharman is one of three men charged as a result of an investigation into a suspected delivery service for illegal drugs that was conducted between March and May of last year by White Rock RCMP and the Mounties' undercover operations unit, a special section of officers who pose as criminals to obtain convictions.

Late last year, Jonathan Taylor Rakic, 21, of Surrey, and Langley resident Rockwell Doxey, 26, were each charged with one count of trafficking in a controlled substance in connection with the operation.

Rakic made his first court appearance in December, and his trial has been scheduled for two days beginning May 30.

Doxey made his first court appearance in November, and is due back before a judge on March 27.

None of the accused are in custody.
