Surrey Mounties say they seized drugs, weapons and money in two separate criminal investigations this week.
On Tuesday, May 14 Surrey RCMP drug section police searched a residence in the 13700-block of 100th Avenue in Whalley, as part of a nine-month investigation into alleged drug trafficking, and seized “suspected” cocaine, fentanyl, Xanax and Percocet, as well as $2,800 in cash, a starter pistol and a “conductive energy weapon.”
Sergeant Chad Greig said a 30-year-old man was arrested but no charges have been laid.
A second arrest and seizure, also on Tuesday, occurred during a traffic stop in the 12700-block of 60th Avenue in Newton.
“As a result of the stop, police located and seized suspected cocaine, approximately $1,200 in cash, and other evidence which is believed to be associated to drug trafficking,” Greig said.
The 31-year-old driver, a man from Vancouver, was released on a promise to appear in court, with no charges laid.
Greig said police believe both cases “are linked to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict.”
