Three people have been arrested and various quantities of numerous drugs  seized from a Surrey home, not far from a secondary school, after police executed a search warrant on the residence.

In a release on Monday, Surrey RCMP said the search took place on March 8, in the 1400 block of 160th Street.

During the investigation, police “received information that many youths were attending this home to purchase drugs,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Winston Shorey.

Police seized a large quantity of pot, psilocybin mushrooms, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), cannabis extract, and more than $2,500 CAD from the home.

Police also seized 6 pellet guns and 5 knives during the incident.

The three men that were arrested have been released with future court dates. Their names cannot be released, police said, as official charges have not yet been laid.

Officers described the investigation as active and on-going.

“Drug busts are often noteworthy because of the quantity or types drugs seized,” said Shorey. “In this case we have taken down an operation which targeted youth.”

These arrests and seizures, he said, “are part of a wider, long-term effort to reduce the prevalence of drug trafficking in our communities.”
