OVER a two-week period, the Surrey RCMP investigated individuals suspected of allegedly dealing illicit drugs, which culminated in the execution of a search warrant in the Guildford area.

On February 21, the Surrey RCMP Drug Section conducted a search on a residence in the 15600-block of 99B Avenue. During the course of the overall investigation and the search of the residence, investigators seized approximately 50 doses of suspected cocaine, approximately 34 doses of suspected fentanyl / heroin, approximately $1,900 cash and two vehicles suspected of being offence-related property. Three individuals have been arrested and since released while the investigation continues.

“These alleged illegal activities posed not only a significant threat to those who use illicit drugs, but also to the general public, due to these activities being connected to the Lower Mainland gang conflict,” said Superintendent Shawn Gill, Community Services Officer. “Through prevention, education, interdiction and enforcement, the Surrey RCMP will continue to strategically investigate individuals and locations involved in the illegal drug trade.”

Anyone with information or observes suspicious activity is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
