Chilliwack: A significant quantity of illegal drugs, police believe were destined for Chilliwack were seized during the execution of a Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrant during a RCMP multi-jurisdictional drug trafficking investigation.
On September 10, 2019 Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit Drug Section (CRU), supported by the Vancouver Police Department Organized Crime Unit, executed a CDSA search warrant in the 5600-block of Boundary Road, Vancouver.
An alleged 10 kilograms of methamphetamine, 700 grams of fentanyl as well as drug cutting agents, processing materials, cellular phones, and cash were seized.
Two people that were arrested during the search were later released by police.
“Vancouver Police Detectives from the Organized Crime Unit assisted the RCMP on this substantial seizure of drugs, we believe this will have a significant impact on the health and safety of the local community,” says Sergeant Aaron Roed of the Vancouver Police Department.
Following a thorough review of evidence gathered, all circumstances of the investigation will be forwarded in a report by the RCMP to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for their assessment of CDSA charges.
“A large quantity of illegal drugs were seized before having an opportunity to reach the streets of our community,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. “The Chilliwack RCMP worked closely with our partners at Vancouver Police Department to target a multi-jurisdictional drug trafficking organization.”
RCMP remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact their local police agency or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
