SURREY RCMP have seized illicit drugs and cash from a Whalley residence following an investigation by its Community Response Unit (CRU).
The seizure is the result of an investigation which began on March 5. The CRU was on a pro-active patrol in Whalley when they observed suspicious activity, consistent with drug trafficking, at a residence located in the 11400-block of 124th Street.
The investigation led to the execution of a search warrant on April 22 and as a result police seized plastic packages containing suspected fentanyl, hard-pressed pills, and methamphetamine. Police also located and seized approximately $25,541 in cash.
A man and woman were detained at the residence and released pending further investigation. No charges have been laid at this time.
“The illicit drug trade is a significant driver of crime in our community,” said Staff-Sgt. Mike Deneumoustier on Monday. “We will continue to pro-actively investigate illegal drug activity in our community to reduce crime and keep Surrey safe.”
