Northern traffic stop leads to cash seizure in Chilliwack

A routine traffic stop in northern B.C. has led to the seizure of $13,000 in cash from a suitcase at the Chilliwack Greyhound station

A routine traffic stop in northern B.C. has led to the seizure of $13,000 in cash from a suitcase at the Chilliwack Greyhound station, police say.

RCMP in Fort St. John had pulled a vehicle over for speeding on January 25. Three people were charged and the vehicle searched.

According to Fort St. John RCMP, police found 705 grams of marijuana, six ounces of cocaine, over $13,000 in cash, a knife, a crowbar and a can of bear spray.

But that’s not all.

During the search, RCMP officers located a shipping receipt in the vehicle for a package sent through the Greyhound Bus Depot addressed to a recipient in Chilliwack. The package was allegedly sent by one of the accused who was in police custody. The traffic member suspected there may have been more contraband sent via Greyhound and requested the package be intercepted by Chilliwack RCMP and held pending a search warrant.

Chilliwack RCMP located the package, which was identified as a suitcase, at the bus station. A search warrant was granted and police located $13,000 in cash concealed in a container inside the suitcase.

RCMP are continuing their investigation.
