On August 30, 2022, Surrey RCMP Drug Unit executed a search warrant at a convenience store located in the 10200-block of City Parkway.

17 grams of cocaine

300 hydromorphone pills

Police continue to work alongside the property management company and City of Surrey Bylaws to address the issues pertaining to the business.

The bulk fentanyl alone represents over 2,000 potentially fatal doses taken off our streets, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations officer, Cst Sarbjit K. Sangha. We will be keeping a close eye on this location, which has been a hot spot for drug dealing and violence.
