Chilliwack RCMP arrest two men, seize drugs and cigarettes

CHILLIWACK RCMP arrested two people during an investigation of an alleged drug trafficking operation.

An investigation initiated last summer by the Chilliwack RCMP Priority Target Team (PTT) resulted in the arrest of two people and seizure of drugs, believed to be methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, cash, cigarettes, replica handguns and a black powder rifle during a search at a residence in the 46000-block of Gore Avenue.

A 44-year-old man and a 35-year-old man, both from Chilliwack, were later released from custody pending further investigation.

Following a thorough investigation and review of evidence, the RCMP will forward all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for their assessment of CDSA charges.

“Illegal drugs, firearms were prevented from reaching the streets of our community,” said Cpl. Mike Rail, Spokesperson for the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD).
