Multi- Jurisdictional Probe Nets Drugs, Cash, Firearms
Prince George, B.C. – Search warrants executed in Prince George, Chilliwack and Richmond have resulted in arrests and the seizure of drugs, cash and firearms.
The sweep was part of a 14 month investigation by the Prince George Federal and Serious Organized Crime Unit (FSOC) into drug trafficking in the Prince George area. During the course of their investigation, police gathered evidence which led them to expand their investigation beyond the Prince George area and into the Lower Mainland.
Four individuals were arrested, and police seized substances believed to be cocaine and heroin, as well as seizing cash, firearms, body armour and vehicles.
Police believe these individuals were responsible for supplying cocaine at the kilogram level in Chilliwack and Prince George.
This 14-month investigation highlights the fact that those associated to the drug trade conduct their business across multiple jurisdictions, says Cpl. Dave Tyreman, North District Media Relations Officer.
We are confident that our latest enforcement action, with support from our law enforcement partners in Chilliwack and Richmond, will seriously hinder these individuals’ drug trafficking network.
Once formal charges have been laid, additional details will be released.
