FIREARMS, drugs, and vehicles were seized by RCMP during a police investigation of alleged drug trafficking.
Officers of the Chilliwack RCMP Priority Target Team (PTT) executed a search warrant of an address in the 46000-block of Princess Avenue on July 5.
A loaded shotgun, a modified handgun, two cross bows, ammunition and replica handgun air pistols were seized. A motorcycle, a dirt bike, and two scooters linked to thefts reported to Chilliwack RCMP together with drugs believed to be fentanyl, paraphernalia associated to drug trafficking, and cash were also seized.
