Mounties shut down illegal drug sales operation in Chilliwack

An RCMP investigation led to the seizure of illegal drugs and the collapse of an alleged drug trafficking operation.

An investigation initiated by the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) led to the arrest on March 30, 2022, of a 34-year- old man during an alleged street level illegal drug transaction. Officers followed the arrest with the execution of a Controlled Drug and Substance Act search warrant of an apartment in a building in the 45000-block of Victoria Avenue where police arrested a 31-year-old man.

Police seized large quantities of illegal drugs believed to be methamphetamine, fentanyl and crack cocaine, paraphernalia consistent with the sale of illegal drugs and cash during the execution of the search warrant.

Police later released both men from custody.

Chilliwack CRU officers continue to pursue their investigation, said Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. Safety of the community is always our priority. Dangerous drugs destined for the streets will not reach their destination.
