RCMP have just released details on a lengthy investigation with the Surrey RCMP Drug Section and the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team.

On May 23, three search warrants were produced simultaneously to search three separate residences.

The first was located on the 12700 block of 64 Avenue, a second on the 8800 block of 132 Street, and the third on the 9200 block of 163 street.

According to Surrey RCMP, the residences and persons living inside were suspected to be involved in drug trafficking and have an affiliation with “the lower mainland gang conflict.”

A total of six males, as young as 18 and as old as 59, were arrested.

In total, police seized the following from the three houses:

  • 250 doses of suspected fentanyl
  • 475 doses of suspected cocaine
  • $6,000 in cash
  • Two firearms
  • Three vehicles, seized as possible offence-related property.

Superintendent Shawn Gill shares that “this is another example of the progress being made in disrupting the activities of those involved in the illegal drug trade and the associated violence that comes with it.”

Amounts of narcotics seized by police were not given in weight. The Surrey RCMP has commented that no further information will be released at this time, however, investigations are still ongoing.
