Suspected Drug Traffickers Busted in Fort St. John
Fort St. John, B.C. – Three people have been arrested on drug-related charges in Fort St. John.
The arrests were made by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. (CFSEU-BC) last Friday.
Sergeant Lindsey Houghton says CFSEU-BC’s North District investigators busted a 58 year old drug runner as he drove into the Fort St. John area and met up with two other people in an isolated part of town.
A subsequent search yielded approximately 1.8 kg of powdered cocaine, 1.6 kg of crack cocaine and around $138,000 in cash.
All three, including a 25 year old male and a 19 year old male, have been released pending the approval of drug-related charges.
Houghton says the arrests are in relation to a Chilliwack-based crime group that was targeted in an investigation earlier this year
He notes the group, “while hailing from the Fraser Valley, operates the overwhelming majority of their alleged drug trafficking activities in cities and towns in B.C.’s central and north regions.”
