Multiple search warrants lead to substantial drug seizure: Surrey RCMP

Surrey, BC – Surrey RCMP’s investigation into a drug trafficking network culminated in a substantial seizure of drugs, including tens of thousands of potentially lethal doses of fentanyl.

In Spring of 2021, the Surrey RCMP Drug Unit initiated an investigation into a drug trafficking network with ties to the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict. Through an extensive investigation, three residences in the Whalley area were identified as locations of interest.

On October 13, 2021, Surrey RCMP’s Drug Unit with the assistance of the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team executed three search warrants in quick succession at the identified locations. The locations included residences in the 12600 block of 97 Avenue, 11700 block of 96A Avenue, and 13400 block of Central Avenue. During the execution of the warrants, two men were arrested and later released pending charge approval.
