An investigation into drug trafficking that began in the Fraser Valley led RCMP to sources in Metro Vancouver.
In late 2018, Chilliwack RCMP launched an investigation focused on a number of individuals who were suspected of supplying bulk amounts of illegal drugs for trafficking in Chilliwack.
Investigators linked a Chilliwack address and four Surrey locations to the street distribution of drugs in Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley, and Surrey.
On June 5, Chilliwack RCMP used a search warrant at a residence in the 46000 block of Princess Avenue in Chilliwack.
At that location, officers seized approximately 13 grams of methamphetamine, 11 grams of fentanyl, 10 grams of cocaine, a revolver, ammunition, $6,000 in cash, and a vehicle.
Two individuals who were arrested during this search were later released from custody.
Then on June 13, Chilliwack and Surrey RCMP conducted searches at four Surrey addresses in the 12000 block of McLelland Road, 2200 block of 172nd Street, 1700 block of 176th Street, and 9300 block of 194th Street.
At these locations, items seized included about 2.4 kilograms of methamphetamine, 590 grams of cocaine, 320 grams of fentanyl, 1 litre of GHB, 16 kilograms of caffeine, 2.8 kilograms of an unidentified powder, drug-trafficking paraphernalia, $35,000 in cash, and a vehicle.
Three people who were arrested during these searches were later released from custody.
After a review of all evidence gathered, RCMP will submit a report to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for an assessment of charges.
