Drugs, firearms, cash seized by Chilliwack RCMP last week

CDSA search warrant at Landing Drive home linked to suspicious activity

Mounties showed off drugs and firearms Tuesday that were seized from a house on Landing Drive on a Chilliwack reserve last week.

RCMP executed a Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrant on Sept. 10 at the house after receiving reports of suspicious activity.

In a statement issued Tuesday, police say evidence gathered by the RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) linked alleged sale of illegal drugs and a suspect to the address.

On Sept. 10, CRU officers supported by the Priority Offender Suppression Team (POST) executed the search warrant at the residence.

A “significant amount” of drugs believed to be methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine, cash, and alleged evidence associated to drug trafficking, and firearms were seized by police during the search.

Two people were taken into custody on warrants of arrest on an unrelated incident.

Police will be submitting all circumstances of the investigation in a report to the BC Prosecution Service for their assessment of CDSA and Criminal Code charges.

“RCMP remain committed to our effort to remove illegal drugs from the streets of our community,” said Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail.
