Arrest leads to 7 year itch

It took almost seven years from the time Darryl James Wilcox was busted with 18 kilograms of cocaine, until he was finally convicted just over two weeks ago.

At the time of his arrest, Kelowna RCMP called him one of the city's biggest drug dealers.

Despite the long wait to head to trial, Wilcox will now have to wait another three months before he finds out the length of his sentence.

The 43 year old West Kelowna man was convicted on June 14th, 2012, for Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking.

He was arrested on October 25, 2005, when police caught him with the huge cache of drugs.

The RCMP says a seizure of that size is rare in Kelowna and "the investigators did some tremendous work to obtain a conviction."

However, it will be a while before Wilcox learns his fate. He's not scheduled to be sentenced until September 7, 2012.
