Vancouver woman arrested after series of druggings

Twenty-one charges, including one of manslaughter, have been laid against a Vancouver woman accused of drugging and robbing men as they used an escort service.

Surrey RCMP says an investigation began after its community response unit linked multiple reports of victims being drugged and robbed.

In one case in February 2021, a man died, allegedly after being given a substance during an encounter.

The police investigation covered Surrey, Burnaby, Langley and Vancouver and the RCMP statement says one person has been arrested and charged as the probe continues.

Thirty-year-old Jessica Kane was arrested last month and has now been charged with numerous offences ranging from manslaughter to theft, fraud, extortion and administering an overpowering drug or substance.

Kane is being held in custody and makes her first court appearance in provincial court in Surrey on Thursday.

A police statement says it is possible there are other victims or witnesses who are reluctant to speak up, but investigators are encouraging them to make a police report with the Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit.
