Chilliwack RCMP seize cash and drugs during Alma Avenue raid

One person was arrested as police executed a search warrant on two units in a complex

Police seized illegal drugs, firearms and cash while executing a search warrant on a residence in the 45000-block of Alma Avenue.

The Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit Drug Section (CRU) arrested one person during the bust, which happened June 4 and involved two units of a complex.

Police seized drugs believed to be cocaine and ecstasy (MDMA). Among the firearms they found was a loaded .45 calibre handgun and ammunition. Officers also seized vehicles, and paraphernalia used in the illegal drug trade.

“Our priority is the safety of the community,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail said in a press release. “At a time when social distancing is a critical social responsibility, a drug/crime house becomes more conspicuous.”

Following more investigation and a review of evidence, the RCMP will forward a report to Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for an assessment of charges.

In the meantime, Rail said there are a few ways to spot a crime house or drug dealer in your neighbourhood.

• Regular and unusual traffic patterns;

• Traffic stops where a residence comes out to talk briefly with occupants of the vehicle;

• House lights are always on.

The RCMP reminds anyone who sees anything they believe to be suspicious to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
