A large quantity of drugs valued by police at almost $12,000 was seized last week at a residence across the street from the Prospera Centre and nearby skateboard park.
“The drugs, all packaged for resale, represent a significant level of trafficking suspected of taking place from the residence,” Sgt. Steve McLeod, commanding officer of the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, said in a news release.
“What is concerning is that this level of drug trafficking was taking place near a public sports complex and a skateboard park – these are places where families expect to go to get away from this type of activity.”
A female was arrested at the residence, but later released. The investigation continues.
During the July 20 search of the residence, CRU officers seized 13 grams of heroin, 333 Tylenol #3s, 19 grams of crack cocaine, 20 grams of methamphetamine, almost 13 grams of powder cocaine, 14 Ecstasy pills as well as several prescription medications and about $2,000 in cash.
Although there is no indication the general public was put at risk by the alleged drug house, McLeod said, “it is fortunate that we were able to disrupt the activities at the home before anyone was put at risk.”
“The Upper Fraser Valley RCMP are committed to targeting drug trafficking in this community and are extremely pleased we were able to make this seizure and remove a significant quantity of drugs that would have otherwise been sold on the street.”
