Chilliwack RCMP recovered a quantity of drugs and weapons during two separate raids in July.
The first, a search of properties in the 50000-block of O’Byrne Road in the Chilliwack River Valley, netted roughly 4,500 marijuana plants on July 17.
The second was in Yarrow. A search of a property in the 41000-block of Yarrow Central Road July 26 turned up “a significant amount of drugs along with cash, a loaded handgun and ammunition,” police said.
“These were two separate investigations being conducted by Chilliwack investigators that prevented a significant amount of drugs and a loaded handgun from reaching the street,” said Cpl. Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.
