Surrey RCMP are investigating after the discovery of what they’re calling a “possible fentanyl packaging site” in the City Centre area.
According to police, on April 24, BC Bailiffs were executing a Supreme Court Writ of Possession at a residence in the 10400 block of University Drive, where the discovery was made.
BC Bailiffs reported the discovery and the Surrey RCMP Drug Section began an investigation which included executing a search warrant at the residence.
As a result of the investigation, police located and seized:
- Multiple packaged doses of suspected methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl
- Numerous items used in the “processing and packaging” of drugs
- Firearm ammunition of various calibres
One man was arrested in connection with the incident, but has since been released. Charges have not been laid as the investigation is ongoing.
“This residence was located within a city block of 135A Street, which is where some our most vulnerable population reside,” said RCMP Sgt.Ryan Element. “It is our hope that this interdiction will have a significant and positive impact on preventing overdoses and the violence associated to the drug trade.”
