Five meth labs taken down Thursday

Police raid labs from Vancouver to Surrey in pre-dawn crackdown.

A pre-dawn blitz in Metro Vancouver has shut down five meth labs from Vancouver to Surrey.

At 5 a.m. Thursday, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. (CFSEU) executed five warrants, two in Vancouver, two in Port Moody and one  in Surrey, in an industrial area in the 9400-block 189 Street.

The investigation, led by the CFSEU’s Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Enforcement Unit, has been under way for some time.

Police believe the labs are tied to B.C. biker gangs. Two arrests have already been made and more are expected to follow shortly.

About 150 police officers took part in the Thursday morning raids, including RCMP, Vancouver Police, and various other agencies.

The drug labs were found at two businesses and three private residences.

“…It demonstrates organized crime’s continued involvement in chemical drug production,” said Insp. Rob Johnston, who leads CFSEU’s Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Enforcement Unit. “We will continue to use every enforcement opportunity we can to pursue organized criminals who put the public in danger by the production of these drugs.”
