THE New Westminster Police have seized a number of luxury vehicles, a large quantity of cash, a loaded firearm, and a large amount of suspected drugs including cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl in a complex investigation into drug trafficking that began in September 2022.

The New Westminster Police Department’s Street Crime Unit executed two search warrants in the City on March 2 that resulted in the seizures.

The NWPD Street Crime Unit worked with several specialty units, including the Gang Suppression Unit and the Crime Reduction Unit. The Vancouver Police Department and the Lower Mainland District Integrated Emergency Response Team supported the investigation.

“The results of this recent project underscore our commitment to focusing our efforts on individuals who are selling and distributing dangerous drugs within our communities,” said Sgt. Andrew Leaver.

“New Westminster Police Department officers continue to take a comprehensive approach to investigating drug trafficking and work closely with our partners to disrupt and dismantle the criminal networks involved in these offenses.”

If you have information about drug trafficking in the City, you are asked to share what you know with NWPD investigators by calling 604-525-5411.
