Surrey RCMP shut down alleged “drug residence”

WHALLEY — Surrey Mounties have shut down what they say was a crack shack in Whalley.

This was in the 12900-block of 108th Avenue.

“The residence was believed to be supplying street level drugs to people attending this location,” Cpl. Scotty Schumann said.

Ten people were arrested during a search at the house late last month and police seized more than 50 grams of crack cocaine, equal to about 500 doses. They also seized 40 grams of heroin — roughly 400 doses — as well as a loaded gun.

“Also located was a small amount of cannabis, hashish and methadone,” Schumann said. “In addition to over $1,700 in cash, materials and supplies used in the packaging and distribution of drugs were also seized.”

Police have recommended to the Crown that possession for the purpose of trafficking and weapons charges be laid against a man, 57, and woman, 41, whose names have not been released.

“This residence was an ongoing concern and was causing disruption to the surrounding community,” Schumann said.

“The seizure of the gun from this residence demonstrates the extent people in the drug trade will go to, to protect their inventory.”
