SURREY — Seven people were arrested when police raided five residences in North Surrey Tuesday morning as part of an investigation into dial-a-dope drug trafficking.

Five men and two women were arrested as police executed search warrants on four apartments in the 13300-block of 102A Avenue and 13700-block of 107A Avenue and another property in the 12900-block of 112A Avenue at about 8:30 a.m.

“By combining these enforcement activities with a number of prevention and intervention strategies we are working on a multi-tiered approach to deal with the negative effects that the drug grade has on the health and safety of our community,” said Inspector Shawna Baher, Surrey RCMP’s proactive enforcement officer.

Surrey RCMP’s Drug Unit, the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team, Traffic Community Services Enforcement Team, Community Response Team, Property Crime and Auto Crime Target Teams and the Integrated Emergency Response Team were involved in the raids.
