Chilliwack RCMP say they dismantled drug trafficking operation

CHILLIWACK, B.C.—Police say a year-long investigation in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley has resulted in the dismantling of an alleged criminal operation involving illegal drugs.

Chilliwack RCMP say the investigation resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of drugs believed to be cocaine, along with firearms, cash and several cell phones.

Police say on Dec. 19 they searched seven homes and executed three search warrants on vehicles in connection to their investigation.

They say the investigation was started by the Chilliwack Crime Reduction Unit Drug Section in the summer of 2018 and assisted by several other teams and units.

Cpl. Mike Rail, spokesman for the Upper Fraser Valley detachment, described it as a “very complex and technical investigation.”

A report by the police and evidence gathered will go to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for assessment of charges.
