Money and drugs were among the items seized from five locations during Tuesday's RCMP bust of an organized crime operation.

Police raid five locations in massive drug bust

RCMP took a chunk out of a local organized crime operation, seizing guns, drugs, money, cars and other items in a coordinated raid.

The RCMP had a busy Tuesday rounding up suspects and seizing firearms, property and illegal drugs as part of an extensive police investigation.

Police from the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit supported by officers of the Crime Prevention Office, Serious Crime Unit, Traffic Services, General Duty and Agassiz General Investigation Section executed five separate Controlled Drug and Substance Act search warrants in Chilliwack.

The warrants contained evidence gathered during a four month investigation into a ‘Dial a Dope’ organization operating from two locations within the city.

Police began the series of raids at a residence in the 43000 block of Alamada Street before moving on to the 9200 block of Hazel Street, the 7400 block of Leary Street, the 9100 block of Mary Street and the 7300 block of Lickman Road.

Five people were arrested and police seized a large quantity of cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, chemicals used in the production of methamphetamine, heroin, material believed by police to be for packaging of product, several firearms, thousands of dollars in cash, luxury cars and Kevlar vests.

The five suspects were later released from custody.

This RCMP investigation will have a direct impact toward preventing the production and sale of illegal drugs by organized crime in our region which in turn makes our community safer,” said Cpl. Mike Rail.

Police will be submitting a report to Federal Crown Counsel later this month detailing all circumstances of the investigation for their assessment of Control Drug and Substance Act charges of Trafficking in Substance and Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.

Police remind everyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious to phone the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
