An investigation by Surrey RCMP’s Frontline led to a significant seizure of suspected illicit drugs and firearms at a residence in the Guildford area.
Surrey RCMP received information that a vulnerable person had been displaced from their residence by an individual who was using the premise to produce and sell illicit drugs. Based on further investigation into the allegations, officers obtained evidence to support a search warrant for an apartment unit in Guildford.
On April 9, 2022, Surrey RCMP Frontline officers with the assistance of the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team executed the search warrant in the 15000-block of 101 Avenue. Police arrested two persons inside the residence.
During the execution of the search warrant officers seized:
- Two firearms;
- Five replica firearms;
- Multiple cell phones;
- 1.8 kg suspected methamphetamine;
- 93 g suspected cocaine;
- 170 g suspected MDMA;
- 30 g suspected crack cocaine; and
- 90 g suspected fentanyl.
Surrey RCMP Frontline officers have conduct of the ongoing investigation and charges have not yet been laid.
This investigation demonstrates the lack of regard individuals involved in the drug trade have for vulnerable members of our community, says Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer, Corporal Vanessa Munn.
Our officers continue to target individuals involved in the drug trade who try to capitalize on other people’s vulnerabilities, whether that be drug addictions or mental health issues.
