Police find drugs and weapons in assault suspect’s truck

A routine response turned into a whole lot more Tuesday afternoon as police took a Chilliwack man into custody.

A Chilliwack man has been arrested and illegal drugs and weapons seized by police during a recent motor vehicle investigation.

Shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday RCMP responded to reports of a two-vehicle collision around Yale Road and Woodbine Street.

The occupants of one car were allegedly threatened by the owner of a black Dodge Durango, and sprayed with some kind of irritant.

The Durango left, but police found it parked on Princess Avenue.

The driver of the suspect vehicle ran away from our officer but was quickly caught and taken into custody,” said Cpl. Mike Rail.

A search of his vehicle allegedly turned up weapons and drugs believed to be GHB (commonly known as date-rape drug), heroin and methamphetamine.

This seizure, made by our Crime Reduction Unit, has prevented a significant amount of illegal drugs from reaching the children and vulnerable sector of our community,” Rail noted.

Thirty seven year old Timothy Teusis Both faces several serious charges, and will remain in custody pending a mid-June court appearance.

One of the alleged assault victims was examined and later released from Chilliwack General Hospital.

Anyone with info about this or any other incident is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
