On March 31st 2022 members of the Cariboo Chilcotin Crime Reduction Unit (CC-CRU) and National Weapons Enforcement Support Team (NWEST) executed a search warrant in the 100 block of Cameron St, Williams Lake. As a result of that warrant the following was removed from the streets.
170 grams of suspected Fentanyl.
70 grams of suspected crack Cocaine.
5 hand guns.
7 long guns.
An amount of currency consistent with drug trafficking.
Execution of this warrant was the culmination of an investigation that involved CC-CRU and NWEST officers working seamlessly with frontline officers from the; Williams Lake, Alexis Creek, Quesnel and Northern District GIS (General Investigations Section) and FIS (Forensic Identification Section).
The CC-CRU is tasked reducing crime in the Cariboo region through the targeting of those offenders who victimize our communities. In this instance the removal of 12 firearms, in addition to toxic fentanyl, from the hands of criminals goes a long way toward enhancing public safety in the region. Cpl Kevin FUNG (NCO I/C CC-CRU).
Four arrests were made and the investigation is ongoing.
