      While Burnaby RCMP arrested two female suspects for drug trafficking, Whistler RCMP arrested a male suspect for the same reason.

      Burnaby RCMP stated today (February 20) that shortly after 9:30 p.m. on February 14, police observed a vehicle believed to be involved in drug trafficking.

      Officers arrested two female suspects and impounded their vehicle.

      A search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of cash and drugs inside hidden compartments within various objects, including a water bottle, a lint roller, and a hairbrush.

      Officers seized fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, counterfeit pills of unknown substances, and approximately $1,500 in cash.

      The cash and vehicle will be forfeited and RCMP will forward charges for possession for the purpose of trafficking. The suspects’ identities have not been released.

      Meanwhile, Whistler RCMP stated today that around 11:20 p.m. on February 9, officers on foot patrol observed a male suspect acting suspiciously in the 4000 block of Whistler Way.

      When officers learned the male was involved in a drug exchange, they arrested him for possession of a controlled substance.

      After they found he had a quantity of suspected cocaine, MDMA pills, and cash, he was rearrested for possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

      The 23-year-old male suspect from Whistler (his name has not been released) was released from custody with a promise to appear in North Vancouver provincial court on April 8.

      Meanwhile on February 15, Vancouver police seized millions of dollars worth of drugs and $20,000 in cash after an emergency response to two men in medical distress at a high-rise at 777 Richards Street.
