Firearms, drugs, cash seized by Chilliwack RCMP at Princess Avenue home

‘When social distancing is a critical social responsibility a drug house becomes more conspicuous’

Chilliwack RCMP reported Saturday a seizure of illegal drugs, firearms, and cash during the execution of a search warrant at a Princess Avenue home back in February.

On Feb. 28, Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit Drug Section (CRU) supported by frontline officers, Chilliwack Priority Target Team (PTT), and Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Section (IPDS) executed the Controlled Drug and Substance Act (CDSA) search warrant of a residence in the 46000-block of Princess Avenue.

Four people in the residence were arrested and later released by police.

Bulk quantities of drugs believed to be fentanyl and heroin, together with smaller amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine, paraphernalia consistent with the preparation and sale of illegal drugs, cash, stolen property, a loaded .22 calibre pistol, rifles, and explosive blasting caps were seized by police during the search.

Following an investigation and review of evidence, all circumstances of the investigation will be forwarded in a report by the RCMP to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for their assessment of CDSA charges.

“Our priority is the safety of the community,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail. “At a time when social distancing is a critical social responsibility a drug/crime house becomes more conspicuous.”

Tips on how to spot a crime house or drug dealer in your neighbourhood:

• Regular and unusual traffic patterns;

• Traffic stops where a residence comes out to talk briefly with occupants of the vehicle;

• House lights are always on.

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