While an investigation into drug trafficking in Metro Vancouver led to the seizure of drugs in Delta last week, a separate investigation in the Fraser Valley led to arrests and drugs being seized.
Upper Fraser Valley RCMP stated in a news release today (January 14) that earlier this month, police began investigating suspicious activity at a residence in the 9700 block of Young Road in Chilliwack.
After investigators gathered evidence, officers arrested a 35-year-old male suspect and a second individual on January 8 in the 9500 block of Williams Street in Chilliwack.
During these arrests, officers seized about 30 baggies containing what is believed to be crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl, as well as a cell phone, cash, and scales.
At the residence, officers using a search warrant seized property linked to thefts and a 19-year-old male from Chilliwack was also arrested for an unrelated event.
After the investigation is completed and evidence has been reviewed, investigators will forward a report to the public prosecution service for charges to be assessed.
Chilliwack RCMP noted that concerned residents can watch for potential indicators of drug trafficking or crime-related activity at residences such as unusual traffic patterns, residents repeatedly speaking briefly with vehicle occupants, and house lights perpetually on.
Meanwhile, Surrey RCMP also announced today that an investigation into drug trafficking that began last September has resulted in the seizure of drugs and a firearm at a Delta residence on January 7.
