A “significant” amount of drugs police believe was bound for Chilliwack was seized from a home in Vancouver last month, leading to two arrests.
Chilliwack RCMP say the seizure and arrests came during a multi-jurisdiction drug trafficking investigation involving Vancouver police.
On Sept. 10, officers from both departments executed a search warrant at a home in the 5600-block of Boundary Road in Vancouver.
Inside, police say they found 10 kilograms of methamphetamine and 700 grams of fentanyl, along with drug cutting agents, processing materials, cellphones and an undisclosed amount of cash. All of those items were seized.
Two people were arrested at the scene but were later released pending further investigation.
“A large quantity of illegal drugs were seized before having an opportunity to reach the streets of our community,” Cpl. Mike Rail with the RCMP’s Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment said in a statement.
“The Chilliwack RCMP worked closely with our partners at Vancouver Police Department to target a multi-jurisdictional drug trafficking organization.”
Sgt. Aaron Roed with Vancouver police said the “substantial” amount of drugs seized “will have a significant impact on the health and safety of the local community.”
Police say the evidence gathered will be forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service for consideration of drug charges.
Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to contact Chilliwack RCMP, Vancouver police or Crime Stoppers.
