Illegal drugs and firearms seized by Chilliwack RCMP

CHILLIWACK RCMP seized illegal drugs and firearms during the execution of a search warrant.

On January 28 at approximately 10:30 p.m., Chilliwack RCMP Priority Target Team (PTT) supported by frontline officers executed a Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrant of a residence in the 4700-block of Elm Street. Police arrested and later released two people.

Officers seized bulk quantities of drugs believed to be fentanyl, heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine. Police also seized firearms, body armour, ammunition and paraphernalia associated to the preparation and sale of illegal drugs during the search.

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

Tips on how to spot a crime house or drug dealer in your neighbourhood:
