'Crack shack' busted in Chilliwack: RCMP

Chilliwack RCMP say they have busted a "crack shack" on Princess Avenue.

Two males and two females were arrested during a warranted search of the residence in the 45000-block Princess Avenue on Tuesday. All were released from custody on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said the bust is "a good example" of the work the detachment's crime reduction unit is doing "to eradicate this vice in our community."

"Crack shacks were recognized as a problem in the community, and placed as a very high priority in the three-year strategic plan," she said.

A quantity of heroin and cocaine with an estimated street value of $1,800 was found in the residence, she said.
