RCMP credit alert neighbours for prompting investigation that led to seizures in Eastern Hillsides

Heavy traffic noticed by neighbours at a home in the Eastern Hillsides led to the seizure of cash, a Taser and drugs including heroin and LSD.

Chilliwack RCMP report one person was taken into custody and later released by following the execution of a Controlled Drugs and Substance Act Warrant at a home in the 8400-block of Unity Drive on Jan. 11.

The warrant stemmed from calls received by the RCMP to report the unusual amount of traffic near the residence. During a subsequent police investigation, plainclothes officers of the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU), covertly gathered evidence leading up to the search, according to an RCMP release issued Monday.

On Jan. 11, CRU investigators supported by the Chilliwack RCMP Priority Offender Suppression Team (POST) executed the warrant.

Drugs believed by police to be heroin, marijuana, and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) along with cash, drug trafficking paraphernalia, a conducted energy weapon (Taser), and a vehicle were seized by police as a result of the search.

“Alert citizens reporting strange happenings in their neighbourhood to the RCMP, played a large role in the police investigation and the prevention of drugs from reaching the streets of our community,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail.

Rail also listed some examples of types of behaviour that might lead residents to spot a drug dealer in the neighbourhood:

Constant day and night foot/vehicle traffic to and from a house or property;

Traffic arrives and leaves at odd times;

Loitering in or around a house or property.

RCMP remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
