Chilliwack, Upper Fraser Valley – RCMP credit a front line officer’s immediate response for the arrest of an alleged drug dealer.
In the late morning of July 15, 2020, RCMP officers noted a man conducting hand-to-hand illegal drug sales in the 46000-block of Yale Road. A Chilliwack Community Response Team (CRT) officer quickly arrested a 58-year-old man from Chilliwack.
Police seized drugs believed to be fentanyl, cash, and evidence consistent with the sale of illegal drugs during the arrest.
Police later released the man from custody.
Following a thorough review of evidence gathered, the RCMP will forward all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for their assessment of Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) charges.
“CRT provides pro-active uniformed deployment to emerging community and public safety issues,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. “The team focuses on an increased police visibility and response.”
RCMP remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
