Two men arrested as RCMP search 3rd Avenue home

A network of security cameras didn't prevent the RCMP's drug section from making a significant drug-related bust.

Two men were arrested Dec. 6 after the RCMP’s Drug Section searched a home in the 4,600 block of 3rd Avenue.

The RCMP received several complaints about the house, and the amount of traffic coming and going. With a search warrant in hand, officers seized heroin, methamphetamine. They found knives and cash. They also found scales and packaging commonly used in the sale of drugs.

All of it was protected by a network of infrared surveillance cameras, set up throughout the property.

As RCMP arrived, a vehicle was trying to leave. Thirty-year-old Jerry Lee Elliott of Chilliwack, and an unnamed 40 year old man were taken into custody.

Elliott was hit with several charges, including possessing a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a prohibited weapon. He’ll appear in court Dec. 18.

The other man was released, with conditions and a promise to appear in court Feb. 26.

This is the 14th drug trafficking related search warrant executed this year by our Drug Section,” said RCMP Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “This number demonstrates the hard work and consistent focus by our Crime Reduction Unit on those issues that cause crime in our community.”
