‘Suspicious substance’ prompts street closure

Chilliwack RCMP shut down the area around Fourth Avenue and Williams Street after a suspicious substance was found inside a trailer

Chilliwack RCMP called in members of the clandestine drug lab team after a ‘suspicious substance’ was found in a trailer on a property at Fourth Avenue and Williams Street.

Chilliwack RCMP shut down the area around Fourth Avenue and Williams Street for more than 24 hours this week as they investigated a suspicious substance found inside a travel trailer at that location.

Police called in specialized  clandestine drug lab investigators to help identify the liquid. RCMP also want to talk to the trailer’s owner.

The incident began just before 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

A property owner had been moving the trailer on the property when he noticed a door was open.  Inside the travel trailer was an unknown liquid that caused him to become nauseous when he tried to close the door.

The property owner was treated at the scene for exposure to the substance by BC Ambulance personnel.

Chilliwack Fire Department was also at the scene on stand-by for the safety of the general public as well as emergency personnel.

Police are actively looking to identify the rightful owner of the travel trailer and are also investigating to determine what the unknown substance found inside this trailer may be.
