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.

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