The people who were arrested were later released, but the RCMP will submit a report to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) and charges may follow.

In the meantime, RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail offered tips on how to spot a crime house or drug dealer in your neighborhood.

– Look for regular and unusual traffic patterns;

-Look for a high pedestrian volume to a residence day and night;

– Look for traffic stops where a resident comes out to talk briefly with the occupants of a vehicle.

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