Two people were arrested in Surrey after police found drugs, ammunition, cash, and an assault rifle during the search of a home late last week.
In a release issued late Monday, Surrey RCMP said that on Friday, August 11, officers with the Surrey RCMP’s Drug Section executed a search warrant at a residence in the 1700 block of 156th Street.
The search came about after police received information that occupants in the home were involved in street-level drug activities.
During their search, officers found an unsecured assault rifle along with evidence of drug processing for street level trafficking.
Other items seized included varying amounts of ammunition, drugs (cocaine, methamphetamine, psilocybin, and benzodiazepines), cash, and drug packaging materials.
A 39-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman – both Surrey residents – were arrested without incident in connection with the case.
“This investigation was aided in part by the concerns and information provided by residents in the area who identified this residence as a problem property,” sayid Surrey RCMP Staff Sgt. Dale Carr.
“We continue to work collaboratively with our community and policing partners and take strategic enforcement action against those involved in the illegal drug trade to make our city safer for all of us.”
Surrey RCMP said that while this particular search warrant “is not directly related to recent ongoing shots fired investigations,” it does involve the street level drug trade which these investigations are believed to be associated to.
