The Surrey RCMP Drug Unit made a major drug seizure linked to a dial-a-dope line, following an investigation that began in February 2018. Police executed a search warrant in the 1100 block of Cecile Drive in Port Moody.

Police located and seized the number of items in the home, including:

  • 35 suspected Xanax pills

  • Approximately $600 in Canadian currency

An adult male was arrested at the residence and was later released. Police say no charges have been laid at this point and the investigation is continuing.

Over the course of the investigation an additional 140 doses of suspected methamphetamine, 940 doses or suspected cocaine powder, and a 2013 Volkswagen Golf sedan were also seized.
