Chilliwack, BC – Three people were arrested during an RCMP investigation of a residence suspected to be involved in the drug trade.
An investigation of suspicious activity surrounding a residence in the 9700-block of Young Road initiated by the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit Property Section (CRU) in early January 2020 linked a 35-year-old man and the alleged sale of illegal drugs.
Evidence gathered by police led to the arrest of the suspect and a second person on of January 8, 2020 in the 9500-block of Williams Street. RCMP officers seized approximately 30 baggies containing what police believe to be crack cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl, together with scales, a cell phone, and cash during the arrests.
The same evening CRU supported by Chilliwack RCMP Drug Section, Priority Target Team, and general duty officers executed a Controlled Drug and Substance Act search warrant of the dwelling. Property linked to thefts reported to police was seized and a 19-year-old man from Chilliwack was arrested on an unrelated event.
Following a thorough investigation and review of evidence, all circumstances of the investigation will be forwarded in a report by the RCMP to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for their assessment of CDSA charges.
Folks watching and reporting to police what appears to be out of place in the neighbourhood remains a powerful tool to keep crime out of the community, says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
