Chilliwack couple arrested after hard drugs found

Two people have been arrested on drug charges following the discovery of heroin, crystal meth and cocaine in a home off Luckakuck Way, last Wednesday.

Acting on community concerns of drug trafficking, police initiated an investigation which culminated in search warrant of the residence, located in the 7700 block of Luckakuck Place. In addition to the drugs, police also seized drug trafficking paraphernalia.

Arrested were a 32-year-old woman and a 42-year-old man, both from Chilliwack. They are to appear in Chilliwack Provincial Court on July 22. Three charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking are being recommended to Crown counsel.

“Our recent community consultative process identified drugs as a priority concern,” said Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “Following our crime reduction mandate we are able to successfully focus on these community concerns.”

Police are continuing their investigation into this matter.
