Chilliwack: Several people were taken into custody and later released by RCMP following the execution of Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrants at two marihuana outlets.
Police received complaints of alleged illegal cannabis sales from locations in the 8000-block of Ashwell Road and the 100-block of Old Dyke Road. During the weeks following, officers of the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) gathered evidence in their investigation leading up to the searches.
On Thursday July 12, 2018 at approximately 10:00 a.m. CRU officers executed CDSA search warrants at the addresses.
Drugs believed to be marihuana and cash were seized by officers during the searches.
“Evidence will be reviewed to determine whether police will be submitting all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the BC Prosecutors Service for their assessment of CDSA charges,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
RCMP remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
